In 2010, François Varlet from Saint Etienne, France, proposed the laparoscopic extravesical transperitoneal approach according to the Lich-Gregoir technique for the treatment of vesicoureteral reflux in children. If the position of the ureterovesical junction is not ectopic, and by avoiding megaureters, this technique is safe with success rates similar to the open technique. Discussions remain as to a bilateral simultaneous approach, which could lead to bladder dysfunction.
