  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reviewed 53 eyes which underwent trabeculectomy with topical mitomycin C. The series comprised primary open-angle glaucoma 42 eyes and primary angle-closure glaucoma 11 eyes. The postoperative intraocular pressure (TOP) was defined as high or low when the IOP was 8mmHg or more or under 8mmHg respectively. There was no difference in the surgical survival rate after Kaplan-Meier method between the high and low group during 7 days after surgery. The surgical survival rate was significantly higher in the low than the high group during the 8 to 10 days after surgery. There was no difference in the incidence of postoperative complications between the two groups in both periods. It appeared that sufficient lowering of IOP during the first 9 postoperative days will lead to long-term IOP control.
