  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We evaluated 78 eyes with primary open glaucoma treated by trabeculectomy with repeated subconjunctival 5-fluorouracil. The ages of the 58 patients averaged 49.2±13.8 years at the time of surgery. The follow-up averaged 24.3±14.0 months. Particular attention was paid to the total amount of 5-fluoro-uracil, postoperative intraocular pressure (IOP) at 1 and 2 weeks, flat anterior chamber and choroidal detachment, if any. Endpoint was defined as the time at which the IOP became uncontrolled according to the predetermined criteria. The IOP value at the second postoperative week was judged as the sole significant hazard factor using a stepwise selection method (p<0.01).
