CONCLUSIONS Despite the negative pre-operative urine culture, frequent incidence of leukocyturia and symptomatic urinary infections were detected in a fairly high number of cases. Therefore, we recommend asking the patients during the hospital admission process specifically about the urinary infection symptoms. The results of our study show that antibiotic prophylaxis during the removal of indwelling urinary catheters placed for a short-term is unnecessary. Key words: endoprosthesis, urinary catheter, bacteriuria, urinary tract infection. PMID: 29351538 [PubMed - in process]

An 80-year-old woman presented with gross hematuria and flank pain. She also complained of asthenia and severe weight loss lasting for 1 month. The patient had been treated 10 years prior for a bladder carcinoma by radical cystectomy and continent skin diversion. She then experienced multiple urinary tract infections and had a chronic left ureteral stenosis that required repetitive ureteral stent. Her past medical history was also remarkable for diabetes mellitus. Her physical examination was normal, blood pressure was 170/70 mm  Hg, and temperature was 35.9°C.

This study aimed at evaluating the appropriateness of ceftriaxone use in medical and emergency wards of Gondar university referral hospital (GURH), Northwest Ethiopia. A prospective, cross‐sectional study design was employed to evaluate the use of ceftriaxone. The medical records of patients who received ceftriaxone were reviewed prospectively between January 1 and March 30, 2017. Appropriateness of ceftriaxone use was evaluated as per the protocol developed from current treatment guidelines. A total of 390 patients’ medical records were reviewed. The utilization rate of ceftriaxone was found to be high with a poin...

Urine culture is the gold standard for the diagnosis of urinary tract infection (UTI), one of the most common causes of bacterial infection. As such, urine specimens are responsible for a major share of the workload in clinical microbiology laboratories. The inclusion of metrics, such as the catheter-associated UTI (CAUTI) rate, that factor into hospital reimbursements and concerns surrounding the attrition of clinical laboratory personnel have prompted scrutiny of urine culture utilization in many organizations.
