The Atlas of Strabismus Surgery, now in its second edition, remains the best reference source on this topic. In the second edition, the new procedures included are the temporal approach to weakening of the superior oblique, recession of the superior oblique, and sagittalization of the superior oblique.
There is also a chapter dealing with diagnostic and surgical techniques for strabismus with restrictions. Active muscle forced generation tests are described. This test, which was originally described by A. B. Scott, is a new and essential test in patients with restricted motility. An adjustable suture technique used by the author is also described. No reference is made to other forms of adjustable sutures advocated by other authors. The adjustable resection technique of O'Connor has been omitted.
The Faden or posterior fixation suture technique and its indications are described in this new edition.
The section on supermaximum resection techniques is similar to the
