Transposition Surgery for Rectus Muscle Palsy
Transposition surgery is based on changing the location of the muscle insertion so the muscle pulls the eye in a different direction (i.e., changes the vector of forces). Transposition surgeries can be used to treat a rectus muscle paresis, a lost muscle, A and V patterns (Chapter 15), small vertical tropias (Chapter 15), and torsion (Chapter 15). Three transposition procedures will be described in this chapter: Knapp, Jensen, and Hummelsheim.
