Abstract

Primary vesicoureteric reflux is regarded as a congenital condition resulting from a short submucosal ureteral segment and an absence of adequate detrusor support behind the intravesical ureter. Several antireflux operations have been devised, all of which entail opening the bladder and performing a variety of procedures on the ureter. Polytef paste is a sterile, relatively inert, injectable paste, containing polytef, glycerine and polysorbate and polytef is Teflon that has been pyrolysed. Subureteric injection of Teflon is a good substitute for open operation which eliminate vesicoureteric reflux because it is well tolerated, avoids open operation and shortens Hospital day. Herein we report two case of vesicoureteric reflux treated by endoscopic injection of Teflon and review the literatures.
