Endoscopic treatment with Deflux takes about 15 minutes on an outpatient basis and usually allows the child to go back to normal activities the day after it’s done.
The patient is first placed under general anesthesia. With the patient properly positioned, a cystoscope is inserted, and the Deflux needle is inserted in the working channel of the cystoscope. Deflux is injected according to the recommended technique, after which the needle and cystoscope are withdrawn, and postoperative care is given.
There are three approved techniques for administering Deflux: : the HIT procedure (Fig. 1.), the Double HIT procedure (Fig. 2.) and the STING procedure (Fig. 3.).
