Sonographic assessment of the effect of vesicoureteral reflux and urinary tract infections on growth of the pediatric solitary kidney.
J Pediatr Urol 11(3):145.e1-6.
Abstract : In the largest series to date we were able to discern no independent effect of either VUR or UTI on sonographically determined renal growth in patients with a solitary kidney. However, UTI and VUR together result in kidneys that are smaller than other solitary kidneys not so affected. Follow-up studies of larger cohorts seem warranted to confirm these findings and discern the clinical import of these smaller kidneys.
