PURPOSE: We prospectively investigated the impact of risk factors for febrile urinary tract infection in infants with postnatally confirmed prenatal hydronephrosis.
Objective: Evaluate the prevalence and outcomes of urinary tract infection (UTI) among renal transplant recipients.
OBJECTIVE/PURPOSE: Febrile urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common bacterial disease that may lead to substantial morbidity and mortality especially among the elderly.
Conventionally, diagnosis of lower urinary tract infection (LUTI) is made on the basis of history, urine microscopy and culture.
Urinary tract infection is the most prevalent bacterial infection among residents in Danish long-term care facilities, and it is the most common reason for antibiotic therapy as prevention or treatment in this population.
OBJECTIVE: Recently, new predictors of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in children with a first febrile UTI such as Procalcitonin (PCT) were introduced as selective approaches for cystography.
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common community-acquired infections.
BACKGROUND: Prospective studies from developing countries that have investigated risk factors for trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX)-resistant Escherichia coli in women with uncomplicated urinary tract infection (UTI) remain scarce.
BACKGROUND: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most common infection experienced by humans after respiratory and gastro-intestinal infections, and also the most common cause of nosocomial infections for patients admitted to hospitals indeed UTIs are the most frequent bacterial infection in women.
BACKGROUND: Overweight and obesity have become a global public health over the last decades.
AIM: Information on the epidemiology of childhood urinary tract infections (UTIs) is scarce and mostly based on retrospective data.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the most common infections in renal transplant recipients and are considered a potential cause of bacteremia, sepsis, and affects graft outcomes.
OBJECTIVE: To determine the sensitivity, specificity, Positive Predictive Value (PPV) and Negative Predictive Value (NPV) of Urine Nitrite (NIT) and Leukocyte Esterase (LE) test compared with urine culture for diagnosis of UTI.
BACKGROUND: The substantial prevalence of bacterial lower urinary tract infections (LUTIs) in out-of-hours (OOH) primary care is a reason for frequent prescription of antibiotics.
INTRODUCTION: Since initial antibiotic treatment in patients with urinary tract infection (UTI) is empiric, is very important to know the local epidemiology to make the correct therapeutical decisions.
We sought to determine the frequency, risk factors, and clinical impact of recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI) in kidney transplant recipients.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are frequently complicated with bacteremia.
PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to investigate the existence of a relationship between pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI).
Objective: Urinary tract infections (UTIs) and vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) are assumed to predispose children to renal damage.
