The Importance of Routine Biochemical Tests in the Diagnosis of Leptospirosis

In this study was investigated the place of routinely used biochemical tests in the diagnosis of leptospirosis. Some parameters amenable to routine use are able to differentiate the disease from other cases with similar clinical and laboratory findings.


Objective: To determine the place of routinely used biochemical tests in the diagnosis of leptospirosis.

Incidence and Prediction of Catheter-related Bladder Discomfort after Transurethral Resection of the Bladder Tumour

This study showed that the incidence of catheterrelated bladder discomfort (CRBD) was 82.3% at day 1 in patients undergoing transurethral bladder tumour resection (TURB) and reduced to 23.2% at day 3. Being male, and aged < 65 years, were identified as independent factors associated with moderate or severe CRBD.


Objective: Catheter-related bladder discomfort (CRBD) has suggested a large inter- and intraindividual variation in patients after transurethral resection of the bladder tumour (TURB), emphasizing the need for valid predictors and improved treatment. We performed a prospective observational study to determine the incidence and predictors of early postoperative CRBD in patients undergoing TURB.
