Vesicoureteral reflux

Pediatr Clin North Am. 2006 Jun;53(3):413-27, vi. doi: 10.1016/j.pcl.2006.02.010.


Vesicoureteral reflux, the abnormal flow of urine from the bladder into the ureter, is one of the most common congenital anomalies found in children. The association of vesicoureteral reflux with urinary tract infections and renal scarring has important clinical implications. New insights into pathogenesis and new surgical techniques are changing the approach to the management of this disorder.
