Abstract

Vesicoureteric reflux (VUR) is a common cause of recurrent urinary tract infections in children. Mild reflux (grade I-II) is usually managed conservatively with antibiotics but severe degree of reflux (grades III, IV, V) requires surgical intervention. We present our initial experience with endoscopic correction of vesicoureteric reflux by sub-ureteric teflon injection (STING) in ten patients. Results are available for 15 ureters with a success rate of 86.6%. There was no change in the grade of VUR in two ureters. There were no complications. Endoscopic correction of vesico-ureteric reflux by sub-ureteric teflon injection is effective and simple with no pain to the child. It averts the need for open operations.
