Long-term follow-up of bilateral botulinum toxin injections versus bilateral recessions of the medial rectus muscles for treatment of infantile esotropia

Long-term follow-up of bilateral botulinum toxin injections versus bilateral recessions of the medial rectus muscles for treatment of infantile esotropia

...The mean number of injections in successfully treated botulinum group patients was 1.4. The success rate was similar in the botulinum (68%) and surgery (77%) groups..... 

Comments: When botulinum toxin is used versus surgical intervention for strabismus, the failure rate is still about 30%. DM
