Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common and in general are caused by intestinal uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) ascending via the urethra. Microcompartment-mediated catabolism of ethanolamine, a host cell breakdown product, fuels the competitive overgrowth of intestinal E. coli, both pathogenic enterohemorrhagic E. coli and commensal strains. During a UTI, urease-negative E. coli bacteria thrive, despite the comparative nutrient limitation in urine. The role of ethanolamine as a potential nutrient source during UTIs is understudied. We evaluated the role of the metabolism of ethanolamine as a potential nitrogen an...

ConclusionsWe think that the most appropriate antibiotic to be chosen for the outpatients for empirical treatment in all age groups in our region, is as oral nitrofurantoin and parenteral amikacin. Also the appropriate parenteral antibiotics that should be selected for the empirical treatment of inpatients UTI in all age groups are the TZP, amikacin and carbapenems.

ConclusionBacterial colonization and UTIs despite antimicrobial prophylaxis are common in urethroplasty patients. This, however, does not appear to impair urethral healing or influence wound healing, suggesting that postoperative prophylaxis may in fact offer no benefit.

Authors: Roy P, S R, MittalMittal R, Mehta S Abstract Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in children is often treated with antimicrobials for prolonged durations, which often leads to antimicrobial resistance. In this context, this review article discusses the use of endoscopic injection in VUR as a safe and efficacious option for these children. The literature pertaining to VUR- its clinical manifestation and management, antibiotic resistance- with special reference to management of VUR, and endoscopic dextranomer/hyaluronic acid gel injection for management of VUR was reviewed by identifying key words in a PubMed search...

Conclusion: In animal models, EIT has the capability to detect reflux in the kidneys with high accuracy. The results show promise for EIT to be used for screening of VUR in children. Significance: VUR is the most common congenital urinary tract abnormality in children. The condition predisposes children to urinary tract infections and kidney damage. The current gold standard diagnostic test, a voiding cystourethrogram, is invasive and uses ionizing radiation; therefore, there is a need for new tools for identifying VUR in children. This study presents a noninvasive method to detect VUR in animal models, illustrating the po...

This study sought to identify complications in rTKA that were independently associated with NIDDM/IDDM compared to non-diabetic (Non-DM) patients and whether IDDM was associated with specific postoperative complications compared to NIDDM.Methods and materials16,428 rTKA patients were identified from the ACS-NSQIP database from 2005 to 2016 and stratified into three separate cohorts. 12,922 (78.66%) were Non-DM, 2335 (14.21%) had NIDDM, and 1171 (7.13%) had IDDM. Univariate analyses were utilized to assess for differences in demographics, preoperative comorbidities, and postoperative complication rates. Multivariate logisti...
