96 patients (all males) aged between 50-80 years with urinary tract infection with indwelling catheters for more than 2 weeks were studied. The reasons for catheterization -62(64.5%) had BPH, 7(7.2%) had cancer of prostate, 9(9.3%) had urethral stricture, 11(11.4%) had CVA, 2(2%) had penile cancer, 2(2%) had poly trauma, 3(3.1%) had C.V.D. Only those with monomicrobial isolates were selected for the study. The isolated organism from urine culture in a calibrated wire loop delivering 10/41 urine sample was used to inoculate blood, Mac conkey and agar plates and incubated aerobically at 37.c for 24-48 hours. Isolated colonies were biochemically identified. All isolates were tested for susceptibility to commonly used antibiotics on Mueller-Hinton agar by standard Kirby–Bauer disc diffusion method. There were 57(59.3%) e.coli, 15(15.6%) Klebsiellaspp, 7(7.2%) Enterobater sp., 5(5.2%) Acinetobacter, 12(12.5%) p. Aeruginosa infections. The susceptibility of isolated bacteria to antibiotics was studied. This practical study of urinary tract infections associated with catheterization will help the urologist to treat such patients efficiently to avoid the risk of morbidly and mortality.

Abstract


96 patients (all males) aged between 50-80 years with urinary tract infection with indwelling catheters for more than 2 weeks were studied. The reasons for catheterization -62(64.5%) had BPH, 7(7.2%) had cancer of prostate, 9(9.3%) had urethral stricture, 11(11.4%) had CVA, 2(2%) had penile cancer, 2(2%) had poly trauma, 3(3.1%) had C.V.D. Only those with monomicrobial isolates were selected for the study. The isolated organism from urine culture in a calibrated wire loop delivering 10/41 urine sample was used to inoculate blood, Mac conkey and agar plates and incubated aerobically at 37.c for 24-48 hours. Isolated colonies were biochemically identified. All isolates were tested for susceptibility to commonly used antibiotics on Mueller-Hinton agar by standard Kirby–Bauer disc diffusion method. There were 57(59.3%) e.coli, 15(15.6%) Klebsiellaspp, 7(7.2%) Enterobater sp., 5(5.2%) Acinetobacter, 12(12.5%) p. Aeruginosa infections. The susceptibility of isolated bacteria to antibiotics was studied. This practical study of urinary tract infections associated with catheterization will help the urologist to treat such patients efficiently to avoid the risk of morbidly and mortality.
