VUR in children

If your child has vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), there are treatment options available


A urinary tract infection, or UTI, can be painful for a child, and frustrating for a parent. But febrile UTIs (a UTI accompanied by a fever, sometimes written as fUTI) or multiple UTIs can be a sign that something else is going on. Possibly, VUR.

Deflux is a safe and effective procedure indicated for the treatment of children with vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) grades 2-4. A recent study showed that 94% of parents were highly satisfied with Deflux treatment.1
