Participants will undergo daily gentamicin bladder instillations to determine if its use will reduce the rate of symptomatic urinary tract infections (UTIs) as well as the use of oral and intravenous antibiotics in adults with chronic spinal cord injury (SCI) who have recurrent UTIs. Participants are randomized into one of three groups: 1) Gentamicin and saline instillation 2) Saline only instillation 3) Standard of care, no instillation.
The purpose of this study is to determine if twice daily bladder flushing with an antibiotic solution will decrease the rate of UTIs and the use of oral medications used to treat UTIs. The occurrence of UTIs in the SCI population is high, with a rate of about 2.5 episodes per year. The inability to effectively empty the bladder increases the risk of UTIs, which are the most common medical complication after SCI. This study will help us understand the effectiveness of a local bladder therapy on preventing UTIs and improving bladder function in individuals with SCI.
