    Comprehensive Ophthalmology

    Two months after a trabeculectomy with mitomycin C and subsequent 5-fluorouracil injections given superotemporally. Note (a) the nylon sutures that had been lysed with laser and (b) gaping around sclera flap. The limbal polyglactin suture has dissolved (c). Note (d) the avascular tissue and severe thinning of conjunctiva superotemporally as an effect of the antifibrotic agents. The lack of injection is due to aggressive topical steroid therapy.
