Editorial Comment

By analyzing a large insurance claims database the authors demonstrated that the 2011 AAP guideline not to perform a VCUG after a first urinary tract infection in all infants up to 24 months old has resulted in fewer studies obtained (reference 5 in article). Interestingly, it appears that fewer VCUGs were also performed in older children despite the fact that the guidelines did not make any recommendations for the older cohort. It should not be surprising that primary care physicians and specialists ignored the age cutoff, which may be one of the hazards of making rigid pronouncements, since such recommendations can somehow migrate beyond the intended subpopulation.

Editorial Comment

The authors hypothesized that the 2007 NICE and 2011 AAP guidelines for imaging after urinary tract infection corresponded to decreased use of VCUG in children, and indeed this is what they observed, particularly after 2011. These findings add to the growing literature documenting the overall decrease in VCUG use during the last decade (reference 8 in article).1
