Is mytomicyn better than 5-fluorouracil as antimetabolite in trabeculectomy for glaucoma?

Summary of "Is mytomicyn better than 5-fluorouracil as antimetabolite in trabeculectomy for glaucoma?"

Trabeculectomy is considered the standard for glaucoma surgery. Postoperative scarring is one the factors associated with surgery failure. Different antimetabolites have been used in order to reduce this risk, particularly 5-fluorouracil and mitomycin C. Although both are considered effective, it is not clear if they are different in terms of success of trabeculectomy and adverse effects.
