Abstract

Strabismus surgery has been viewed as being associated with a high degree of mortality. Many past studies have used small surgical samples and have stressed the various theoretical causes of the deaths rather than view the procedure from a statistical and scientific standpoint. We present here a large series of surgical cases collected nationwide showing that strabismus surgery is a relatively safe procedure associated with a mortality less than that of a tooth extraction.
