|Abstract:||The role of pretransplant voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) in adults has been questioned owing to the low prevalence of abnormal findings. As there are no studies evaluating the relevance of VCUG in children and because vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) occurs with higher prevalence in children, we performed a retrospective cohort study to identify any predictors for abnormal VCUG. We reviewed 271 consecutive renal transplants performed between 1980 and 1997. By logistic regression, the etiology of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and age at transplantation (Tx) were strong predictors of abnormal pretransplant VCUG findings in children. On multi-variate analysis, children with urologic etiologies of renal disease had an odds ratio (OR) of 16.5 (p|
