- PreviewChroustova et al ascertain to what degree 99m-Tc-DMSA scintigram findings influence management of primary VUR. [1} While preservation of renal function through avoidance of recurrent pyelonephritis is the priority in VUR management, data suggest that most renal injury precedes the diagnosis of VUR – whether as dysplasia or scarring - rather than during follow-up. [2,3] That is not to say that children are not at risk for recurrent urinary tract infection which represents morbidity in and of itself.
