Vesicoureteral Reflux and Reflux Nephropathy

  • Priscilla Kincaid-Smith

Abstract

For many years the treatment of vesicoureteral reflux has been regarded as an area which concerned the urologist and not the nephrologist. It has been assumed that treatment of this condition, if indicated, was surgical. However, the place of surgery in the treatment of vesicoureteral reflux remains controversial. The importance of medical management in the control of infection and of other complications has gained considerable impetus over recent years.
