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 ...
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...
Endoscopic correction of VUR has gained its popularity due to its less invasiveness, associated low morbidity and short hospital stay. Although short term follow-up had justified their eff...
The purpose of this research is to validate the common administration of oral midazolam to children prior to voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) to see if this will significantly decrease chil...
In children, specifically the intravesicle administration to study vesicoureteral reflux in children already catheterized and scheduled for voiding cystourethrogram. Contrast-enhanced ultr...
The first urinary tract infection can be a marker of a urinary tract anomaly, mainly vesicoureteral reflux. The aim of this work was to determine the association between isolated enterobacteria with t...
To prevent overdiagnosis and overtreatment of vesicoureteral reflux, the 2007 British National Institution of Clinical Excellence (NICE) and 2011 American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines both r...
To compare the efficacy and safety of robot-assisted laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation (RALUR) and open ureteral reimplantation (OUR) in treating primary pediatric vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) based...
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.
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.
Back flow of gastric contents to the LARYNGOPHARYNX where it comes in contact with tissues of the upper aerodigestive tract. Laryngopharyngeal reflux is an extraesophageal manifestation of GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX.
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.
Chronic ESOPHAGITIS characterized by esophageal mucosal EOSINOPHILIA. It is diagnosed when an increase in EOSINOPHILS are present over the entire esophagus. The reflux symptoms fail to respond to PROTON PUMP INHIBITORS treatment, unlike in GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE. The symptoms are associated with IgE-mediated hypersensitivity to food or inhalant allergens.
