Abducens palsy is one of the commonly encountered cranial nerve palsies in strabismus clinic. For large-angle esotropia, due to complete abducens palsies, various vertical recti transposition (VRT) procedures have been described. Hummelsheim and Jensen's procedure are especially popular among them. Risk of anterior segment ischemia and induced vertical deviation postVRT prompt to search for better procedures to correct the esotropia and also improve the abduction. Modified Nishida's procedure (no split, no tenotomy transposition) is one of the newly described procedure in this direction. We describe three cases of complete abducens nerve palsy treated by this procedure.
