Abstract Details


To investigate efficacy of sub-tenon injection of bupivacaine in prevention of OCR and post-operative pain.


A prospective randomized controlled clinical trial


Fifty patients who were candidate for strabismus surgery were randomized in case (bupivacaine injection) and control (sterile saline injection) groups. Standard strabismus surgery was performed for all cases. Occurrence and severity of OCR and post-operative pain were compared between two groups.


Post-operative pain score was significantly lower in bupivacaine treated group. Both occurrence and severity of OCR were significantly less in the study group compared to controls.


Sub-tenon injection of bupivacaine as a local anesthetic can significantly prevent OCR and decrease the magnitude of bradycardia. This technique can also prevent post-operative pain in patients undergoing strabismus surgery.
