Mitomycin (0. 2 mg/ml) was applied intraoperatively to 26 glaucomatous patients (33 eyes) during conventional trabeculectomy procedure. Most of them were considered to be at high risk of surgical failure. The conjunctival flap was fornix-based in 9 patients (11 eyes). The success rate was 84. 8 % without any serious side effect.
