ABSTRACTVesicoureteral reflux after kidney transplant is a common complication and can favor recurrent urinary tract infection and acute pyelonephritis in the graft, increasing the risk for graft loss. The general consensus is that symptomatic vesicoureteral reflux should be resolved. Endourologic management is recommended because it has shown reflux resolution, a reduced rate of urinary tract infections, and pyelonephritis with few complications. Over past decades, a variety of agents and procedures have been used for managing symptomatic vesicoureteral reflux after kidney transplantation. The present article reviews the characteristics of the different techniques utilized and analyzes the efficacy of the different products employed for the endoscopic resolution of symptomatic vesicoureteral reflux after kidney transplantation in adults.
