Abstract: 

Purpose: Congenital esotropia is the most common deviation in infancy. The aim of this study is to determine the relationship between age of surgery and motor results at Emam Hossein Medical center during 1999-2001.
Patients & Methods: This cohort study was performed on 40 patients with congenital esotropia who were less than 2 years old. Their deviations were measured by the krimsky method. The age at surgery in controls was between 1 and 2 years and in cases it was between 6 months and 1 years. All operations were bimedial recession. Recessions were performed according to Park's table. Follow up period was at feast 2 months. If post op. Deviation was less than 8 PO, it would be considered successful. The results were analysed by Chi2, Fisher and T-tests.
Results: In this study 47.5% of the patients were male and 52.5%were female. Amblyopia was noted in 30% of patients. The preoperative esotropia was 43.8+9.0 PO in controls and 40.8 + 6.1 PO in cases. Success rate was 75% in the control group and 85% in the case group (N.N).
Conclusion: Because there was no difference between groups, it is hopeful that surgery under 2 years of age will be successful. In addition it is expected that patients get good peripheral fusion in future.
