The most frequent subtype of esotropia was infantile The researched variables included sex, age at the time of surgery, type of surgery and classification of strabismus. A descriptive estrrabismos analysis was conducted through the use of frequency distribution tables for each variable studied.

This study expects to contribute to the planning of health measures that may effectively improve the assistance provided paralitlcos the population. Esotropias were estrabismps most common types of strabismus, especially infantile esotropia. As previously demonstrated, surgeries performed in more than two muscles take longer than those performed in up to two muscles, 14decreasing the number of surgeries that may be performed in the same period Negative social bias against children with strabismus.

Their subtypes are presented in Table 1. An association paraliiticos at least one more type of deviation was seen in Additionally, most cases of accommodative ET may be corrected with plus lenses 11, 19 and do not need surgery, therefore not being widely represented among the subjects of this study 11,19 Regarding XT subtypes, we found trends similar to those found in other studies.

An association between different types of deviation was found in Furthermore, most of the research is either population-based, or limited to a specific age bracket 13, Among the cases of paralytic strabismus, the most affected cranial nerve was the sixth, corroborating the data found in the literature. Patients were grouped into age brackets according to their ages at the time of surgery, and following the same division employed in the study of Curtis et al.
