In this investigation the surgical procedure used in pediatric-age patients in Pinar delRío province was analysed from January 1, 1995 to Dcember 31st. 2005. All patients being assisted during this period at Pediatric Out-patient Clinic were recorded, and all of them underwent a surgical procedure. A longitudinal, descriptive retrospective study was carried out. Data are expressed in Tables determining chi-square test with a significance level of 0,05. It was remarkable that those who received surgical procedure were females and white, having most of them a disorder in the renal scintigram and a descending urogram, a prevalence of bilateral vesico-ureteral reflux was observed generally, and the Cohen technique was the most used, and more than 80% of patients were healed 1 year after the surgical procedure.
