This prospective study evaluated the long-term results of intraoperative 5-FU in glaucoma patients undergoing trabeculectomy. 14 patients categorized as high risk (10 patients) or medium risk (4 patients) underwent trabeculectomy with 5-FU and were followed for a mean period of 32 months. Patients were evaluated for visual acuity, cup-disc ratio and IOP. The number of medications was also taken into consideration 78% (n=11) of patients achieved controlled IOP, (mean IOP of less than 21 mmHg) with or without medication. There was statistically significant reduction of IOP and number of medication after the operation. There was no significant complication observed during the follow up period.
