In a study of 70 eyes operated on of glaucoma that underwent conventional trabeculectomy with the use of transoperative 5-Fluorouracil, those eyes at high risk for postoperative closure of the fistula were excluded and subjected to several postoperative controls during a year and a half. Complications characteristic of filtering surgery without antimetabolites that improved with the usual treatment were observed. An adequate control of the intraocular pressure was achieved without reoperations or hypotensive drugs, which makes us think about encouraging future results with this type of surgery
