Non-neurogenic bladder dysfunction and vesicoureteral reflux in children.
Summary of "Non-neurogenic bladder dysfunction and vesicoureteral reflux in children."
Various types of bladder dysfunction are associated with urinary tract infection, renal damage and vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). In this article the influence of functional bladder disturbances such as detrusor instability (overactive bladder, OAB) and bladder sphincter dyssynergia (dysfunctional voiding), on the resolution of vesicoureteral reflux are reviewed. In summary, it is important to distinguish between children with dysfunctional voiding (increased activity of the pelvic floor during voiding) and those with OAB (detrusor overactivity during filling) because the latter has less effects on VUR.

A neurogenic bladder is one which functions abnormally due to disorders of sacral nerves that control the bladder's ability to fill, store and empty urine. Abnormal bladder function can cause the blad...
Improved identification of children with vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) at risk for recurrent febrile urinary tract infection (fUTI) may impact management decisions. We hypothesized that VUR occurring ea...
Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is a disorder that has been studied since the early days of pediatric urology. From 1893, when it was first documented in humans by Pozzi, the research and clinical managem...
ABSTRACT: Although the diagnosis of vesicoureteral reflux and of reflux nephropathy is a well-established and shared procedure, its treatment nowadays is still very controversial. New developments on ...
To the Editor: The Randomized Intervention for Children with Vesicoureteral Reflux (RIVUR) trial reported by Hoberman et al. (June 19 issue)(1) was similar to our Prevention of Recurrent Urinary Tract...
Endoscopic subureteral injection for vesicoureteral reflux has become an established alternative to ureter reimplantation in children. Some recent studies suggest that ESI can be also a pr...
The purpose of this study is to learn whether all children with vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) should be treated with antibiotics. The study will tell us if prophylactic antibiotic treatment ...
Aims of this study is to characterize the pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic profile and evaluate the safety, efficacy and tolerability, of tamsulosin hydrochloride as treatment in children w...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate a novel ultrasound bladder scanning device designed particularly for children in children with bladder dysfunction.
The study was conducted between 2004 and 2006 to prove efficacy and tolerability of the antimuscarinic propiverine compared to placebo in children suffering from non-neurogenic overactive ...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Retrograde flow of urine from the URINARY BLADDER into the URETER. This is often due to incompetence of the vesicoureteral valve leading to ascending bacterial infection into the KIDNEY.
Dysfunction of the URINARY BLADDER due to disease of the central or peripheral nervous system pathways involved in the control of URINATION. This is often associated with SPINAL CORD DISEASES, but may also be caused by BRAIN DISEASES or PERIPHERAL NERVE DISEASES.
Retrograde bile flow. Reflux of bile can be from the duodenum to the stomach (DUODENOGASTRIC REFLUX); to the esophagus (GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX); or to the PANCREAS.
A HERNIA-like condition in which the weakened pelvic muscles cause the URINARY BLADDER to drop from its normal position. Fallen urinary bladder is more common in females with the bladder dropping into the VAGINA and less common in males with the bladder dropping into the SCROTUM.
A condition with damage to the lining of the lower ESOPHAGUS resulting from chronic acid reflux (ESOPHAGITIS, REFLUX). Through the process of metaplasia, the squamous cells are replaced by a columnar epithelium with cells resembling those of the INTESTINE or the salmon-pink mucosa of the STOMACH. Barrett's columnar epithelium is a marker for severe reflux and precursor to ADENOCARCINOMA of the esophagus.
