Abstract

Twenty vesicoureteral reflux patients with 31 reflux renal units were treated with endoscopic Teflon injection. Twenty one reflux renal units were cured and the success rate after first injection was 67.7 %. In 5 more renal units the second injection was done and the refluxes were subsided in all cases. The overall success rate was 83.9 %. Teflon injection was also effective in vesicoureteral reflux with neurogenic bladder. There are many benefits of endoscopic Teflon injection in the treatment of vesicoureteral reflux but long term follow-up is needed and we must consider the possibility or complication especially in child.
