          Abstract

          Following an increasing number of submissions on endoscopic treatment of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), the Journal of Pediatric Urology sought to establish a quality guideline that would enable reviewers to select the best papers for publication in the journal. The "Strengthening the Reporting of Observational Studies in Epidemiology" (STROBE) Statement, established in 2007, is a 22-item checklist designed to assist with clear reporting of observational studies. This checklist includes a description of methodological items and instructions on how to use them to transparently report observational studies. The aim of the present study was to apply the STROBE principle to observational studies about endoscopic management of VUR, and to establish a "check-list" to assist authors with good-quality submissions.
