Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), sometimes referred to as urinary or bladder reflux, is a serious pediatric urinary condition in which urine refluxes from the bladder through one or both ureters toward the kidneys. This is due to an abnormality in the region where the ureter meets the bladder. Normally, a valve at the entrance to the bladder prevents backward flow of urine. Infected urine can reflux back into the ureters and, in severe cases, into the kidneys – which may lead to long-term kidney damage. Deflux is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure that has been proven safe and effective in children with VUR grades II-IV. Deflux is a gel made from two tissue-friendly polysaccharides (types of sugars) – Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid (NASHA®) and dextranomer (Dx) – and is used as a tissue bulking agent that is injected around the ureteral opening to prevent urine from flowing back up from the bladder through the ureters.
