What is Vesico Ureteral Reflux?
Vesico ureteral reflux is the abnormal back flow of urine from the bladder into the ureter and up to the kidney. It is the most common problem found in children with urinary tract infections. Reflux is dangerous because it allows bacteria that might be in the bladder to reach the kidney. This can cause a kidney infection (pyclonephritis) which potentially can lead to kidney scarring and / or damage. About 1% of children in the world have VUR.
