Published studies on community-acquired urinary tract infections (UTI) often do not link microbiological findings with clinical risk factors and patient data.
We retrospectively correlated clinical findings of all patients with UTI of a urological outpatient clinic with the respective microbiological analysis of their urine samples over 2 periods of time: (A: 2005-2006 and B: 2011-2012).
Purple urine bag syndrome (PUBS) is a rare phenomenon in patients that is associated with the use of a long-term/indwelling urinary catheter. The purple color results from indigo and indirubin, accumulated from bacteria-mediated tryptophan conversion.
Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is the most common healthcare-associated infection. The primary aim of this study was to investigate whether the use of a silicone catheter coated with an ultrathin layer of a combination of the noble metals gold, palladium and silver (BIP™-silicone catheter) could reduce the incidence of CAUTI and antibiotic prescription compared with a standard silicone catheter in a cohort of acute neurological patients suffering primarily from stroke.
Rationale and key points This article aims to assist nurses to undertake the removal of an indwelling urinary catheter in female patients in a safe, timely, effective and patient-centred manner, while maintaining the patient's privacy and dignity.
Early removal of urinary catheters is an effective strategy for catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) prevention. We hypothesized that a nurse-directed catheter removal protocol would result in decreased catheter utilization and CAUTI rates in a surgical trauma intensive care unit (STICU).
Staphylococcus aureus is a relatively uncommon causative agent of urinary tract infection (UTI). However, the clinical features of S. aureus-related UTI are unclear. Thus, we aimed to clarify how patients with S.
Uncomplicated urinary tract infections, especially those caused by Escherichia coli, have historically been widely studied. However, complicated urinary tract infections are presenting ever increasing healthcare challenges, particularly with Proteus mirabilis.
To assess whether catheter replacement is associated with better clinical outcomes in individuals with long-term urinary catheters.
Prospective, noninterventional study.
Individuals (mean age 79.
OBJECTIVE - To evaluate the functional and operative results of thulium laser prostate enucleation (ThuLEP) in patients with indwelling catheters for refractory urinary retention (RUR).
METHODS - Patients with indwelling catheter, undergoing ThuLEP for benign prostate hyperplasia were prospectively enrolled.
There is a high incidence of urinary tract infection (UTI) in patients with neurogenic lower urinary tract function. This results in significant morbidity and health care utilization. Multiple well-established risk factors unique to a neurogenic bladder (NB) exist while others require ongoing investigation.
