Rectus muscle union in sixth nerve paralysis not only straightens the eye, but is a safe, simple, and effective procedure. It improves the function in the field of gaze of the involved muscle, produces a good cosmetic result, often with fusion, and little or no vertical imbalance. We conducted a retrospective study of 6 cases to investigate the effectiveness of surgical procedures(Jensen procedure) in the treatment of lateral rectus muscle paralysis. Medial rectus muscle recession was also performed in three cases.
