BACKGROUND: We prospectively assessed the feasibility of two urinary markers of renal injury as potential diagnostic tests for acute febrile urinary tract infection (UTI) and subsequent renal scarring.
With increase of multi-drug resistant Escherichia coli in community-acquired urinary tract infections (CA-UTI), other treatment option with a therapeutic efficacy and a low antibiotic selective pressure is necessary.
BERKELEY, CA (UroToday.com) - In this era of multidrug resistance and drastic decrease in drug development targeting bacterial infections, it is critical that clinicians strive to utilize antibiotics judiciously.
Urinary tract infections (UTI) remain one of the most prevalent and frustrating morbidities for neurogenic bladder patients, and death attributed to urosepsis in the spinal cord injury (SCI) patient is higher when compared to the general population.
The purpose of this research was to correlate daily consumption of cranberry juice and symptoms of a diagnosed UTI among 26 volunteer adult female patients.
BACKGROUND: We have previously reported a NMR-based urinalysis for the screening of urinary tract infection (UTI) with high accuracy and reproducibility.
BERKELEY, CA (UroToday.com) - Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common infectious diseases with high costs and significant impact on patients’ quality of life.
OBJECTIVES: Fournier's gangrene (FG) is an devastating disease that affects the perineum and genitourinary region, and is commonly a result of poly-microbial infection.
BACKGROUND: Urinary schistosomiasis is caused by an intravascular infection with parasitic Schistosoma haematobium worms.
BACKGROUND: The cephalosporin class has been associated with an increased risk of bleeding among elderly patients receiving warfarin.
IMPORTANCE: No studies have systematically examined the accuracy of clinical, laboratory, and imaging variables in detecting renal scarring in children and adolescents with a first urinary tract infection.
A previous MSMR report found that 42.8% of all incident (first-time) urinary tract infections (UTIs) in males, but only 0.4% of such UTIs in females, were diagnosed as "urethritis, unspecified" (ICD-9: 597.80).
Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a severe, rare, potentially lethal soft tissue infection that develops in the scrotum and perineum, the abdominal wall, or the extremities.
INTRODUCTION: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most frequent bacterial infection in infants with nonspecific clinical manifestations.
Introduction: We assessed the possible consequences of applying the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines for imaging studies of children younger than 3 years with urinary tract infection (UTI) to clinical practice, in terms of altered diagnoses and treatment.
INTRODUCTION: Urinary tract infection (UTI) has a high incidence and recurrence, therefore, treatment is empirical in the majority of cases.
Genitourinary infections (GUIs) have been associated with increased risk of gastroschisis in 2 studies.
Fournier's gangrene (FG) is a rare and often fulminant necrotizing fasciitis of the perineum and genital region frequently due to polymicrobial infection.
Purpose: To examine the effects of antibiotic prophylaxis on postoperative infection rate in patients with negative urine cultures undergoing ureteroscopy (URS).
The nitrofuran derivative nitrofurantoin has been used for more than 60 years for the antibacterial therapy of uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTI).
