Percutaneous nephrolithotomy and modern aspects of complications and antibiotic treatment.

Conclusion: This study has a total complication rate of 16%, approximately 10% of those are severe. The most common complication to PCNL was infection (60%), followed by bleeding (5.4%), reoperation (1.6%) and pain (0.5%). The high prevalence of E. faecalis might need to be considered, however the results should be validated in a larger cohort, possibly with a higher rate of antibiotic resistance, before a change of guidelines regarding prophylactic antibiotics could be proposed.

Authors: Umehara T, Tanaka R, Nagao S, Tomiyama D, Kawabata Y, Nagano Y, Takeuchi Y, Kakehashi M Abstract BACKGROUND: Previous studies have examined when activities of daily living (ADL) recovery more than six months after surgery can be predicted, and how much accuracy the predictors have. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the predictors of ADL decline and evaluate their accuracies one year post-operation for hip-fracture patients. METHODS: We studied patients who underwent hip fracture surgery and were able to walk independently pre-operatively. The predictors of ADL declined one year ...
