The article focuses on the use of transposition of the inferior oblique tendon as a procedure to treat concurrent dissociated vertical deviation (DVD). It mentions that the advantage of anterior transposition is that it can right a concurrent overacting inferior oblique tendon. It also states that anterior transposition will prevent further surgery for the vertical deviation.
