GARCIA ORTELLS, David; GONZALEZ-CHAMORRO, Fernando; FERNANDEZ FERNANDEZ, Eldiberto  and  PALACIO ESPANA, Andrés De. Vesicoureteral reflux in adults. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.2, pp.341-348. ISSN 0004-0614.

Primary vesicoureteral reflux is defined as the dysfunction of the vesicoureteral junction in the absence of any other bladder pathology. Most works in the literature focus on pediatric vesicoureteral reflux, paying little attention to reflux in adults. There is not much knowledge about the real incidence of this pathology in adults and there are few published papers about what are the situations in which we should suspect, perform a diagnostic work up and treat reflux in adult patients. It is article we perform a bibliographic review on topics as important as epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment of reflux in adults. The objective of this article is to transmit what are the clinical manifestations in front of which we should look for adult reflux and when to treat when it is diagnosed.
