Abstract

A 49-year-old woman with debilitating nystagmus and oscillopsia failed conservative therapy. A titanium T-plate was anchored to the lateral orbital rim and cantilevered into the orbit where it was secured to the inferior rectus muscle tendon with a suture. After the procedure was performed on both eyes, the patient had significant decreases in the amplitudes of her nystagmus and oscillopsia, thereby improving her daily function. She had sustained duration of effect through 7 years of follow up. This novel surgical technique holds promise in the treatment of acquired nystagmus and debilitating oscillopsia for which conventional therapy may be ineffective. The case report is in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
