Pages: 
497–502
Synopsis: 
This study investigated the association of radiological abnormalities and asymptomatic bacteriuria in patients with sickle cell disease. No association was seen and there was no increased risk of symptomatic urinary tract infections in these patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) in sickle cell disease (SCD) in Jamaica is 5.3%. This study sought to determine the association between ASB and anatomical urological abnormalities and symptomatic urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Nosocomial Urinary Tract Infections: Micro-organisms, Antibiotic Sensitivities and Risk Factors

Issue: 
Pages: 
188–93
Synopsis: 
Urinary tract infections are the most common hospital acquired infections. The aim of this study was to determine responsible micro-organisms, their antibiotic sensitivities and to describe the incidence and risk factors of nosocomial urinary fact infections.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Although urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the most common hospital-acquired infections, the epidemiology of these UTIs is not well defined in Turkey. The aim of this surveillance study was to determine micro-organisms responsible for UTI, their antibiotic sensitivities and to describe the incidence and risk factors of nosocomial urinary tract infections (NUTI).
