Abstract

Aim: The treatment of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in infants is controversial. Subureteric injection is considered by some to be a popular alternative to long-term antibiotic prophylaxis. In this study, we reviewed our experience in endoscopic subureteric injection to correct high-grade reflux in infants with documented indications for antireflux surgery.
