We evaluated the effectiveness of inferior oblique recession with anterior transposition in treating 12 patients with superior oblique palsy. Mean decreases of hypertropia measured 17 prism diopters in the primary position, 24 prism diopters in adduction, and 21 prism diopters on ipsilateral head tilt. Head tilt and diplopia were uniformly eliminated. No surgical complications were encountered. Postoperative deviations were mild and infrequent. Only one patient demonstrated postoperative underaction of the recessed inferior oblique.
