Vesicoureteral Reflux—Who Needs Ureteroneocystostomy?

  • James M. Holland


Today the urologist treating a patient having recurrent urinary tract infections performs voiding cystourethrography almost as routinely as excretory pyelography (IVP) and cystoscopy. The high yield of vesicoureteral reflux, paraureteral diverticula, and bladder outlet obstruction has stimulated much creative work searching for cause and best treatment of these congential disorders.
