DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT OF UROLUME URETHRAL STENT COMPLICATIONS USING ULTRASONOGRAPHY AND MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.

Urology 2020 Jul 7. Epub 2020 Jul 7.

Department of Urology, Medical University of Gdansk, Poland. Electronic address:

The UroLume urethral stent (American Medical Systems) was introduced to the market in 1988 for management of male urethral stricture and benign prostatic hyperplasia [1]. However, recent reports in the literature showed long-term complications, including: urethral restenosis, urethral pain, recurrent urinary tract infections and stent migration. Therefore, UroLume's efficacy in managing bladder outlet obstruction had to be weighed against an alarmingly high rate of long-term complications [2,3]. Read More

Identification of Enterococcus faecalis in a patient with urinary-tract infection based on metagenomic next-generation sequencing: a case report.

BMC Infect Dis 2020 Jul 2;20(1):467. Epub 2020 Jul 2.

Department of Intensive Care Medicine, The Sixth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, 200233, China.

Background: Urinary tract infection (UTI) caused by various pathogenic microorganisms is ubiquitous in the parts of the urinary system such as kidney, ureter, bladder, and urethra. Currently, clinical detection of UTI is mainly focused on urine culture; however, the diagnostic value of urine culture remains limited due to the time-consuming procedure and low detection rate, especially in patients who have used antibiotics. Generally, treatment for UTI relies on empirical medication rather than pathogen diagnosis, which leads to the inappropriate use of antimicrobial agents and a significant increase in resistant strains.

Sociedad Argentina de Infectología, Argentina.

The Argentine Society of Infectious Diseases and other scientific societies have updated these recommendations based on data on urinary tract infections in adults obtained from a prospective multicenter study conducted in Argentina during 2016-2017. Asymptomatic bacteriuria should be treated only in pregnant women, who should also be systematically investigated; the antibiotics of choice are nitrofurantoin, amoxicillin, clavulanic/amoxicillin, cephalexin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole. In procedures involving injury to the urinary tract with bleeding, it is recommended to request urine culture and, in the presence of bacteriuria, antimicrobial treatment according to sensitivity should be prescribed from immediately before up to 24 hours after the intervention.
