PURPOSE We compare the outcome of extravesical ureteral reimplantation to endoscopic polydimethylsiloxane (Macroplastique, Uroplasty, Inc., Minneapolis, Minnesota) subureteral injection for primary low grade vesicoureteral reflux in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between 1997 and 2000, 180 patients underwent polydimethylsiloxane injection (74, 108 ureters) or extravesical ureteral reimplantation (106, 166 ureters) for low grade vesicoureteral reflux. Low grade reflux was defined as grades I… CONTINUE READING
