Abstract :

Throughout the last decades, there were different approaches to the management of the Vesico-Ureteral Reflux (VUR), varying from a conservative medical to an ???aggressive???, surgical way. The use of different monitoring and therapeutical methods made the results difficult to compare. In the last years though, thanks to the statistical analysis of various studies results, a more integrated approach emerged. The author of this presentation is sharing his experience with the follow up of the children presenting congenital VUR, focusing on the role of the radiology investigations and of renal scintigraphy in determining the adequate management approach for each child. The conclusions drawn are seen as a base for a debate meant to harmonize the management of the children diagnosed at birth with VUR.
