Answer

As a rule, local treatment is administered as adjuvant therapy, after endoscopic treatment of the UC, to decrease the recurrence rate. Methods of delivery vary (eg, irrigation through a ureteroscopic catheter or intravesical instillation after vesicoureteral reflux is ensured); however, irrigation through a percutaneous nephrostomy catheter is the most reliable method.
