Abstract

Endoscopic injection therapy for vesicoureteric reflux (VUR) is now entering its third decade of use. Matouschek originally described the technique using Polytef paste in 1981(1). O’Donnell published the first large clinical series in which endoscopic injection was used to treat reflux and coined the term STING, an acronym for subtrigonal Teflon injection, to describe the technique (2). Subsequent to this landmark publication, other groups accumulated and published their experience with this procedure.
