Hi! Does anybody know something about Vesicoureteral reflux? I just heard that my little cousin has it. As I know it can be very dangerous and if you don’t treat it properly, it can cause severe complications. I heard that it’s necessary to VUR be repaired surgically due to the risk of continued pyelonephritis. Am I right?
