Long-term follow-up of children with acute acquired concomitant esotropia


Sturm, V; Menke, M N; Knecht, P B; Schöffler, C (2011). Long-term follow-up of children with acute acquired concomitant esotropia. Journal of American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus, 15(4):317-320.

Abstract

Purpose

To study the clinical features and surgical outcome of type 2 (Burian-Franceschetti) acute acquired concomitant esotropia (AACE).
Methods

Retrospective analysis of children with AACE type 2. All patients underwent strabismus surgery to restore ocular alignment. All children underwent a complete assessment including medical history and pre- and postoperative ophthalmological and orthoptic examinations. Postoperative follow-up was at least 12 months in all cases.
Results

A total of 25 consecutive patients were included. All but 2 patients (92%) were aligned within 8∆ or less of orthotropia. Of the 25, 15 (60%) regained normal stereovision. In 6 additional cases (24%) some level of binocular vision (Titmus test, 200″ to 3000″) was demonstrated. All of the patients who finally achieved normal stereopsis had lower levels of binocularity on the first postoperative day. The mean interval between surgery and first occurrence of full stereovision was 18 months (range, 2 to 58 months).
Conclusions

General features of AACE type 2 are concomitance of strabismus, absence of an accommodative component even in the presence of hyperopic refractive errors, and no neurological pathology. The potential for normal binocular vision plays a key role in defining this entity. The reemergence of full stereopsis may take several years.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
