Summary of "Urinary tract infections after early removal of urinary catheter in total joint arthroplasty."

Postoperative urine retention (POUR) is a well-known complication after total joint arthroplasty (TJA). POUR is most commonly managed with an indwelling catheter. However, indwelling catheters have been associated with a substantial risk of urinary tract infection (UTI). The purpose of this study was to (1) evaluate the incidence of UTI and POUR in patient with indwelling urinary catheter after TJA, (2) identify the microorganisms responsible for catheter colonization, and (3) assess preoperative risk factors (gender, body mass index, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, smoking) associated with catheter colonization.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Inflammatory responses of the epithelium of the URINARY TRACT to microbial invasions. They are often bacterial infections with associated BACTERIURIA and PYURIA.

Symptoms of disorders of the lower urinary tract including frequency, NOCTURIA; urgency, incomplete voiding, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. They are often associated with OVERACTIVE BLADDER; URINARY INCOMPETENCE; and INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS. Lower urinary tract symptoms in males were traditionally called PROSTATISM.

Strains of Escherichia coli that preferentially grow and persist within the urinary tract. They exhibit certain virulence factors and strategies that cause urinary tract infections.

Substances capable of killing agents causing urinary tract infections or of preventing them from spreading.
