The use of tissue adhesives in strabismus surgery is known for more than 40 years. However, few reports have been published and most of them were experimental. All techniques described the use of tissue adhesives to weaken an extra ocular muscle either by recessing it or to apply a suture less fadenoperation. To our best knowledge, no study applied tissue adhesives to strengthen an extra ocular muscle. Our research showed that the use of ISO-Amyl-2-Cyanoacrylate is considered one of the least harmful and effective tissue adhesive in strabismus surgery. A comparative histologic studies of strabismus surgery with and without sutures using the ordinary and electron microscopes were carried. Our surgical techniques to weaken or strengthen an extra ocular muscle are shown in our presentation. Recent Publications 1.
