Find out why Deflux could be a good choice for your child

Looking for a VUR cure? Deflux treatment may be able to help

With an established safety and efficacy profile in VUR grades 2-4, Deflux may be an alternative to open surgery or long-term antibiotics

If your child has been diagnosed with vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), you are likely looking for a cure. You and your doctor will need to discuss treatment options. For many parents, the prospect of open surgery for their child is terrifying. But keeping your child on antibiotics for long periods may not be the answer either.

Deflux has an established safety profile and can provide an effective option for treatment of VUR.

Deflux is an injectable sugar-based gel that can help prevent the infected urine from backing up into the kidneys. The minimally invasive procedure is done in an outpatient setting, although using general anesthesia is required. Treatment with Deflux is quick and may produce an immediate cure—which means your child can usually return to his or her normal activities the day after the procedure.

In fact, 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

A 2019 long-term follow up study found that 94% of parents were highly satisfied with Deflux treatment.2

Ask your doctor to refer you to a pediatric urologist who can help determine if Deflux is a possible solution for your child. If it is your pediatric urologist, a VUR specialist, can perform the Deflux procedure.
