Abstract The technique and results of simultaneous superior oblique tenotomy and 14-mm inferior oblique recession for true Brown's syndrome are presented for 16 eyes of 13 patients. A good or excellent result was achieved in 15 of 16 eyes (94%). Reoperation for overcorrection was not necessary; however, repeat tenotomy was required in two cases. Inferior oblique underaction was present in 12 of 16 eyes (75%) in the early postoperative period; however, elevation in adduction improved over time. At most recent examination, 92% of eyes demonstrated greater than 25° elevation in adduction. Underaction of the superior oblique occurred in 3 of 16 eyes (19%). A simultaneous superior oblique tenotomy and inferior oblique recession is recommended in all patients selected to undergo surgery for true Brown's syndrome to prevent reoperation for iatrogenic superior oblique palsy.
