Vesicoureteral Reflux


 

Vesicoureteral Reflux is a condition in which urine is able to move backwards from the bladder, up into the kidney.  This is usually a problem that exists from birth and results from an abnormality in the way the ureter (tube that drains urine from the kidney to the bladder) inserts into the bladder muscular tissue. Children with vesicoureteral reflux are at an increased risk for kidney infections and dysfunctional voiding. Your pediatric team will discuss the process and options for evaluation and treatment at your first appointment.
