Providing a child-friendly solution to young patients at risk for kidney reflux
Kite Medical has developed a novel device to address a clear unmet need in a hugely under-served market.
Kidney Reflux involves reflux of urine from the bladder to the kidneys, known clinically as Vesicoureteral Reflux (VUR) it is the most common congenital urinary tract abnormality in children.
Diagnosing VUR in children requires referral to a radiologist for a Voiding Cystourethrogram (VCUG). A VCUG is traumatizing, painful and carries risks of UTIs, bladder spasm, painful urination post-procedure and radiation exposure.
Kite Medical offers children and physicians the first non-invasive, point of care VUR screening tool.
