Abstract

Surgical reimplantation remains a highly effective and safe technique for the correction of VUR. Endoscopic correction of VUR is an option as an alternative to surgical reimplantation. The morbidity and recovery from endoscopic correction of reflux is improved versus reimplantation, but is less efficacious and the long-term results into adulthood are unknown.
