Özet

Background: Dextranomer/hyaluronic acid (Dx/Ha;Dexell (R)) and polyacrylate-polyalcohol copolymer (PPC;Vantris (R)) are the popular tissue-augmenting substances using for the endoscopic injections of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). The aim of the study is to evaluate and compare Dx/Ha and PPC in terms of effectiveness, injection techniques and complications with special emphasis on vesicoureteral junction obstruction (VUJO).
