PURPOSE/METHODS: We recently encountered anterior segment ischemia in a young healthy girl with traumatic abducens nerve palsy after the Jensen procedure and ipsilateral recession of the medial rectus muscle. The patient was treated with topical dexamethasone and homatropine 2% and oral prednisone.
RESULTS/CONCLUSION: The patient's condition improved, and six weeks postoperatively, visual acuity was 20/20. As this complication of anterior segment ischemia is potentially serious and unpredictable, we think that an alternative surgical approach should be used when treating patients with muscle palsies.
