Reflux Nephropathy

Definition of Reflux Nephropathy:

Reflux nephropathy occurs when the normally one-direction-only valve-like mechanisms between the ureters and bladder fail.  This allows urine to flow back up the ureter directly to the kidney.  If the bladder is infected or the urine contains bacteria this exposes the kidney to the possibility of infection (pyelonephritis).
