Özet

Purpose: Dimercapto-succinic acid scintigraphy and urodynamic studies are gold standards to evaluate renal scarring and neurogenic bladder dysfunction, respectively. We sought to establish the value of bladder wall thickness together with urine NGF, TGF-beta 1 and TIMP-2 to predict the urodynamic profile and upper urinary tract damage in children with myelodysplasia.
