Endoscopic treatment of vesicoureteral reflux following transurethral resection of a vesical carcinoma by Teflon injection.


We have treated 33 patients who presented with reflux in 40 ureters following transurethral resection (TUR) for bladder cancer. One or two injections of Teflon were made under the submucosal intramural ureter. Among the 32 ureters that could be correctly evaluated, we observed that vesicoureteral reflux disappeared in 18 (56.3%), and decreased the grade of reflux in 5 (15.6%). There were no modifications in the 9 remaining ureteral units (28.1%). Control urogram and/or sonogram scan were performed in all cases and demonstrating the absence of obstructive uropathy.
