Shakeri, S., Masoudi, P., Mehrabani, D., Tanideh, N., Aminsharifi, A.R., Askari, R. and Yazdani, M. 2008. A new method of extravesical antireflux operation in the rabbit model (extravesical gill-vernet). J. Appl. Anim. Res., 33: 13–16. To introduce a novel surgical technique of repair of primary vesicoureteral reflux extravesical Gill-Vernet, ten rabbits with bilateral vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) (20 renal units) were operated by this new technique and after 6 weeks, the effectiveness of the surgery was evaluated by cystogram and intravenous urography (IVU) for detection of persistent reflux or ureterovesical junction obstruction (UVJO), respectively. Post-operative radiograms revealed persistent reflux in only two (10%) and obstruction in none of the renal units. There were few operative and post-operative complications with no mortality. The favorable success rate (90%) and low morbidity (no UVJO) support the use of the new method of surgery for an uncomplicated reflux.
