Abstract

This is an audit of 50 consecutive children who were treated in Edinburgh with subureteric Teflon injection (STING) for vesico-ureteric reflux between May 1988 and March 1992. There were 68 ureters treated with a total of 89 injections. Twenty-nine ureters (42.6%) were cured after a single injection and another 20 ureters were cured after a second injection (74.2%). These results revealed a decreasing failure rate with experience and compared favourably with other published works. STING is a well-tolerated, simple, effective alternative to medical and surgical treatment for vesico-ureteric reflux in children.
