My 19 months old daughter has suffered with for around seven months. Then, we had an MCU test and it was diagnosed that she had grade 5 reflux in right side and grade 4 in left side. Her ultrasound showed she had 40 cc urine residual. Her doctor suggested ureteric bilateral surgery. She has an open vascular surgery before two months and her stents removed before 20 days. Now, she again had an UTI and reflux problem. Is there any problem? Please guide us.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Surgery to correct reflux will not prevent UTI (urinary tract infection). It will only prevent bacteria from reaching kidneys, thereby preventing renal damage.
Yes, UTI can still occur after correction of reflux. Other factors which predispose to UTI must be ruled out, like neurogenic bladder, voiding dysfunction, dysfunctional elimination syndrome, etc.
If there are no other factors, then the child can be put on prophylactic antibiotics for a few months and this will stop the recurrence. Best wishes for your child.
