In present series on the basis of MCU, UDS and cystoscopic findings at the time of follow up cystoscopic valve fulguration had been done in 26% cases along with unilateral ureteric reimplantation in 10% cases, bilateral ureteric reimplantation in 4% cases, nephroureterectomy
in 12% cases and medical treatment in 74% cases.
