Faden Operation (Posterior Fixation Suture)


The faden operation, also termed posterior fixation suture, is used to weaken the rotational force of a rectus muscle when the eye rotates towards the faden muscle. Faden is the German word for suture, so it is inappropriate to call the procedure “faden suture” (i.e., suture-suture).
