Vesicoureteral Reflux (VUR): Endoscopic Treatment
Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is one of the most common urologic morbidities in children, with an estimated prevalence of approximately 1% of the general pediatric population, but which can be as high as 30% in children with a history of febrile urinary tract infection (UTI) [1, 2]. The goals of treating a child with VUR are (1) to prevent recurring febrile UTI, (2) to prevent renal damage, and (3) to minimize/prevent adverse effects of treatment .
