Purpose: Although they are therapeutically effective, injectable materials for urinary tract are associated with various disadvantages, precluding their universal acceptance. In this study we investigated glass spheres (GSs) as an alternative injectable substance to correct vesicoureteral. reflux (VUR) in an animal model.
