• The surgical correction in the primary position was compared in one group of patients who underwent horizontal surgery without an A or V pattern with a matched group who underwent horizontal surgery with monocular vertical displacement for the A and V patterns. No signiffcant difference was found, and it was concluded that the determination of the amount of horizontal surgery is the same whether monocular vertical displacement is performed or not.
