Management of sensory exotropias is often challenging. In this study, patients who had sensory exotropia >70 prism diopter (PD) were treated with true muscle transplantation. A total of 10 patients with vision <3/60 in one eye were included in the study. All patients underwent transplantation of the medial rectus to the lateral rectus along with a recess–resect procedure. The mean preoperative deviation was 77.5 ± 7.5 PD and postoperative deviation was 6.8 ± 3.2 PD at 1 year. No limitation of movements or lateral incomitance was noted. Thus, this procedure seems to be effective in treating large-angle sensory exodeviations.
