About Deflux

Deflux, a minimally invasive procedure, may be the optimal solution for you and your child

If you’re a concerned parent, ask your pediatric urologist about Deflux.

What is Deflux?

Deflux, a hyaluronic acid (HA) and dextranomer gel, is a tissue bulking agent that’s injected around the ureteral opening to prevent urine from flowing back up the ureters. It’s a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure that has been proven effective in children with VUR.

In a survey of 91 families, 60% of parents preferred treatment with Deflux if they knew prolonged antibiotic therapy had to continue for 3-5 years or when operative treatment was required.1

In a 2018 study, 94% of patients stated satisfaction with their Deflux procedure.2
