An integrated method of management has been used in 29 children with neurogenic bladders and vesicoureteral reflux. Radiological followup reveals that resolution or improvement of reflux occurred in 48 per cent of the renal units managed by close observation only, 48 per cent managed by intermittent catheterization, 75 per cent managed by vesicostomies and 100 per cent in which the ureters were reimplanted. As in the non-neurogenic bladder successful management of reflux and prevention of upper tract deterioration can be achieved by conservative management as well as by ureteroneocystostomy. A protocol of management is outlined.
