Does Post-Operative Prophylaxis With Macrobid Reduce the Incidence of Post-Operative Urinary Tract Infection in Patients Undergoing Placement of a Sub-Urethral Sling for the Treatment of Stress Urinary Incontinence
This project will be a randomized, double blinded, placebo controlled clinical trial. The aim of the trial is to determine whether or not post-operative prophylaxis with macrobid will decrease the incidence of postoperative urinary tract infection in women receiving sub-urethral slings for the treatment of urinary incontinence.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A urinary anti-infective agent effective against most gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. Although sulfonamides and antibiotics are usually the agents of choice for urinary tract infections, nitrofurantoin is widely used for prophylaxis and long-term suppression.
An acute necrotic infection of the SCROTUM; PENIS; or PERINEUM. It is characterized by scrotum pain and redness with rapid progression to gangrene and sloughing of tissue. Fournier gangrene is usually secondary to perirectal or periurethral infections associated with local trauma, operative procedures, or urinary tract disease.
The presence of bacteria in the urine which is normally bacteria-free. These bacteria are from the URINARY TRACT and are not contaminants of the surrounding tissues. Bacteriuria can be symptomatic or asymptomatic. Significant bacteriuria is an indicator of urinary tract infection.
A surgical specialty concerned with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the urinary tract in both sexes, and the genital tract in the male. Common urological problems include urinary obstruction, URINARY INCONTINENCE, infections, and UROGENITAL NEOPLASMS.
A human disease caused by the infection of parasitic worms SCHISTOSOMA HAEMATOBIUM. It is endemic in AFRICA and parts of the MIDDLE EAST. Tissue damages most often occur in the URINARY TRACT, specifically the URINARY BLADDER.
This is a study of patients undergoing gynecologic surgery who require post-operative catheterization to determine if prophylactic antibiotic treatment decreases the risk of post-operative...
The study aims to investigate bacteriological efficacy of a nitrofurantoin formulation given twice daily for seven days in the treatment of adult patients with microbiologically confirmed...
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most common complication after surgery for prolapse or urinary incontinence. UTIs are painful and have the potential to turn into kidney infections. We...
The purpose of this research study is to determine what the cure rates are with a 5 day course of nitrofurantoin versus the more standard 3 day course of trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazone. The...
