- Re: Primary Ablation versus Urinary Diversion in Posterior Urethral Valve: Systematic Review and Meta-analysisJournal of Pediatric Urology
- PreviewIn this systematic review, the authors investigate the controversial topic of whether primary valve ablation or vesicostomy yields superior long-term outcomes in children with PUV [ ]. While the review itself is nicely conducted, it should be emphasized that all 30 studies included in the review have moderate or severe risk of bias. The conclusions founded from these studies should be interpreted cautiously.
