ABSTRACT

Objetivo: O presente estudo tem como objetivo avaliar o perfil de sensibilidade antimicrobiana do patógeno mais comum causador da infecção do trato urinário (ITU) de gestantes que foram internadas em um hospital de ensino do município de São Paulo em determinado período. Métodos: Estudo retrospectivo, transversal, quantitativo, realizado avaliando as uroculturas positivas e o perfil de sensibilidade antimicrobiana dos agentes mais comuns encontrados em ITUs das gestantes de hospital e maternidade-escola do município de São Paulo de janeiro de 2019 até janeiro de 2020. Resultados: A partir da análise de uroculturas positivas e antibiograma de 149 gestantes admitidas com quadro de infecção urinária no referido hospital no intervalo de tempo analisado, constatou-se que 83,89% dos casos apresentaram como patógeno a bactéria Escherichia coli. No âmbito da resistência bacteriana, percebeu-se que o maior índice foi encontrado no que tange a cefalotina (65%), ampicilina (58%) e ampicilina/sulbactam (45%). Ademais, a partir das análises individuais, 20 pacientes, ou seja, aproximadamente 13,42% apresentaram cepas sensíveis a todas as medicações apontadas, e as demais apresentaram resistência a, pelo menos, uma delas. Conclusão: A partir da premissa de eficácia desempenhada pelo protocolo de medicação empírica estabelecido pela instituição no tocante ao tratamento de infecção do trato urinário em gestantes, a cefalotina certamente não deveria compor o rol de drogas ofertadas às pacientes. Isso se dá, pois a sensibilidade apresentada pela Escherichia coli, patógeno que mais comumente está associado aos quadros de ITU do serviço, a essa droga é muito baixa. Já a nitrofurantoína apresentou um satisfatório espectro de cobertura, sendo a resistência à droga inferior a 10%. Com isso, conclui-se que ela deve permanecer como droga inicial para as ITUs das gestantes que chegam a essa instituição.(AU)


Objective: The present study aims to evaluate the antimicrobial sensitivity profile of the most common pathogen that causes urinary tract infection (ITU) in pregnant women who were admitted to a Teaching Hospital in the city of São Paulo in a specific period. Methods: Retrospective, cross-sectional, quantitative study carried out evaluating positive urine cultures and the antimicrobial sensitivity profile of the most common agents found in ITU of pregnant women at Teaching Maternity hospital in the city of São Paulo from January 2019 to January 2020. Results: From the of positive urine culture and antibiogram of 149 pregnant women admitted with a urinary tract infection in the referred hospital in the analyzed period of time, it was found that 83.89% of the cases presented the bacterium Escherichia coli as a pathogen. In the scope of bacterial resistance, it was noticed that the highest index was found with respect to Cephalothin (65%), ampicillin (58%) and ampicillin/sulbactam (45%). Furthermore, from the individual analyzes, 20 patients, that is, approximately 13.42% had strains sensitive to all the medications indicated, with the others showing resistance to at least one of them. Conclusion: Based on the premise of efficacy performed by the empirical medication protocol established by the institution regarding the treatment of urinary tract infection in pregnant women, Cephalothin should certainly not be included in the list of drugs offered to patients. This happens because the sensitivity presented by Escherichia coli, the most commonly pathogen associated with the UTI pathogen of the service, to this drug is very low. Nitrofurantoin, on the other hand, presented a satisfactory coverage spectrum, with drug resistance below 10%. Thus, it is concluded that this should remain as an initial drug for ITUs of pregnant women who arrive at this institution.(AU)

ABSTRACT

To study the mechanism of polysaccharides from seeds of Vaccaria segetalis( PSV) in the treatment of bacterial cystitis through the NLRP3 inflammasome pathway. The rat model of urinary tract infection was used and treated with PSV,and the urine and bladders were collected. The level of interleukin-10( IL-10) in rat urine was detected by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay( ELISA). Western blot and immunofluorescence staining were used to detect the expressions of sonic hedgehog( SHH) and NLRP3 inflammasome [NOD-like receptor thermoprotein domain 3( NLRP3),apoptosis associated speck like protein( ASC) and pro-caspase-1]. The expression of Toll-like receptor pathway was detected by RT-PCR. The death of 5637 cells induced by uropathogenic Escherichia coli( UPEC) and lactate dehydrogenase( LDH) release were evaluated using live/dead staining. The results showed that in the rat bladder,the expressions of SHH,NLRP3 inflammasomes and Toll-like receptors were significantly up-regulated,and NLRP3 inflammasomes were significantly activated by UPEC infection. The administration with PSV could significantly increase the concentration of IL-10 in urine,inhibit the expressions of SHH,NLRP3 inflammasomes and Toll-like receptors in bladder,and inhibit the activation of NLRP3 inflammasomes. A large number of 5637 cells were dead after UPEC infection and caused LDH production. PSV could significantly inhibit the death of 5637 cells and the release of LDH. In conclusion,PSV could inhibit the expression and activation of NLRP3 inflammasomes by inhibiting the Toll-like receptor pathway,thereby mitigating the bladder injury.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Introducción: Las infecciones del tracto urinario (ITU) presentan una elevada prevalencia en el ámbito comunitario. Un rápido diagnóstico microbiológico es esencial para asegurar una terapia adecuada y efectiva. Objetivo: Evaluar un kit de antibiograma rápido (KAR®) en formato point-of-care para la detección rápida de ITU y sensibilidad antimicrobiana. Material y Métodos: El dispositivo KAR® se diseñó y desarrolló en colaboración con ingenieros técnicos y microbiólogos clínicos. Su evaluación se realizó a través de un estudio multicéntrico en el que participaron tres hospitales españoles. Para ello, se realizaron distintos ensayos in vivo con el fin de determinar la correlación del dispositivo con las técnicas microbiológicas de referencia. Resultados: Se ensayó un total de 400 muestras de orinas procedentes de pacientes con sospecha de ITU. El dispositivo KAR® proporcionó rápidos resultados (tiempo medio de positividad de 7,8 ± 1,5 h) con 97% de sensibilidad, 89% de especificidad y 87% de concordancia para la detección de bacteriuria significativa. Los porcentajes de especificidad para los antimicrobianos testados fueron: ciprofloxacina (97%), fosfomicina (94%), cotrimoxazol (84%), ampicilina (80%) y amoxicilina/ácido clavulánico (55%). Conclusión: El dispositivo KAR® puede ser una herramienta útil para el diagnóstico de ITU en pacientes ambulatorios, especialmente en áreas de bajo nivel socio-económico.


Abstract Background: Urinary tract infections (UTI) presents a high prevalence in the community setting. Rapid and accurate microbiological diagnosis is essential to ensure adequate and effective therapy. Aim: To evaluate a rapid antibiogram kit (KAR®) in point-of-care format for rapid detection of UTI and antibiotic susceptibility. Methods: The KAR® device has been designed and developed in collaboration with technical engineers and clinical microbiologists. Its evaluation has been carried out through a multicenter study in which three Spanish hospitals have participated. Thus, different in vivo tests have been implemented in order to determine device correlation with the reference microbiological techniques. Results: During the study period, a total of 400 urine samples from patients with suspected ITU were tested. The KAR® device provided fast results (mean positivity time of 7,8 ± 1,5 hours) with 97% sensitivity, 89% specificity and 87% agreement for the detection of significant bacteriuria. The percentages of specificity for the antibiotics tested were: ciprofloxacin (97%), fosfomycin (94%),cotrimoxazole (84%), ampicillin (80%) and amoxicillin/clavulanic acid (55%). Conclusion: The KAR® device could be a useful tool for diagnosing UTI in outpatients, especially in areas of low socio-economic level.

ABSTRACT

La segunda parte del Consenso Argentino Intersociedades de Infección Urinaria incluye el análisis de situaciones especiales. En pacientes con sonda vesical se debe solicitar urocultivo solo cuando hay signo-sintomatología de infección del tracto urinario, antes de instrumentaciones de la vía urinaria o como control en pacientes post-trasplante renal. El tratamiento empírico recomendado en pacientes sin factores de riesgo es cefalosporinas de tercera generación o aminoglucósidos. Las infecciones del tracto urinario asociadas a cálculos son siempre consideradas complicadas. En caso de obstrucción con urosepsis, deberá realizarse drenaje de urgencia por vía percutánea o ureteral. En pacientes con stents o prótesis ureterales, como catéteres doble J, el tratamiento empírico deberá basarse en la epidemiología, los antibióticos previos y el estado clínico. Antes del procedimiento de litotricia extracorpórea se recomienda pesquisar la bacteriuria y, si es positiva, administrar profilaxis antibiótica según el antibiograma. Cefalosporinas de primera generación o aminoglúcosidos son opciones válidas. Se recomienda aplicar profilaxis antibiótica con cefalosporinas de primera generación o aminoglúcosidos antes de la nefrolitotomía percutánea. La biopsia prostática trans-rectal puede asociarse a complicaciones infecciosas, como infecciones del tracto urinario o prostatitis aguda, principalmente por Escherichia coli u otras enterobacterias. En pacientes sin factores de riesgo para gérmenes multirresistentes y urocultivo negativo se recomienda realizar profilaxis con amikacina o ceftriaxona endovenosas. En pacientes con urocultivo positivo, se realizará profilaxis según antibiograma, 24 horas previas a 24 horas post-procedimiento. Para el tratamiento dirigido de la prostatitis post-biopsia trans-rectal, los carbapenémicos durante 3-4 semanas son el tratamiento de elección.


The second part of the Inter-Society Argentine Consensus on Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) includes the analysis of special situations. In patients with urinary catheter, urine culture should be requested only in the presence of UTI symptomatology, before instrumentation of the urinary tract, or as a post-transplant control. The antibiotics recommended for empirical treatment in patients without risk factors are third-generation cephalosporins or aminoglycosides. UTIs associated with stones are always considered complicated. In case of obstruction with urosepsis, an emergency drainage should be performed via a percutaneous nefrostomy or ureteral stenting. In patients with stents or ureteral prostheses, such as double J catheters, empirical treatment should be based on epidemiology, prior antibiotics, and clinical status. Before the extracorporeal lithotripsy procedure, bacteriuria should be investigated and antibiotic prophylaxis should be administered in case of positive result, according to the antibiogram. First generation cephalosporins or aminoglycosides are valid alternatives. The use of antibiotic prophylaxis with first-generation cephalosporins or aminoglycosides before percutaneous nephrolithotomy is recommended. Transrectal prostatic biopsy can be associated with infectious complications, such as UTI or acute prostatitis, mainly due to Escherichia coli or other enterobacteria. In patients without risk factors for multiresistant bacteria and negative urine culture, prophylaxis with intravenous amikacin or ceftriaxone is recommended. In patients with positive urine culture, prophylaxis will be performed according to the antibiogram, from 24 hours before to 24 hours post-procedure. For the targeted treatment of post-transrectal biopsy prostatitis, carbapenems for 3-4 weeks are the treatment of choice.

ABSTRACT

La Sociedad Argentina de Infectología y otras sociedades científicas han actualizado estas recomendaciones utilizando, además de información internacional, la de un estudio multicéntrico prospectivo sobre infecciones del tracto urinario del adulto realizado en Argentina durante 2016-2017. La bacteriuria asintomática debe ser tratada solo en embarazadas, a quienes también se las debe investigar sistemáticamente; los antibióticos de elección son nitrofurantoína, amoxicilina, amoxicilina-clavulánico, cefalexina y trimetoprima-sulfametoxazol. Ante procedimientos que impliquen lesión con sangrado del tracto urinario se recomienda solicitar urocultivo para pesquisar bacteriuria asintomática, y, si resultara positivo, administrar antimicrobianos según sensibilidad desde inmediatamente antes hasta 24 horas luego de la intervención. En mujeres, la cistitis puede ser tratada con nitrofurantoina, cefalexina, o fosfomicina y no se recomienda usar trimetoprima-sulfametoxazol o fluoroquinolonas; en pielonefritis puede emplearse ciprofloxacina, cefixima o cefalexina si el tratamiento es ambulatorio o ceftriaxona, cefazolina o amikacina si es hospitalario. En los hombres, las infecciones del tracto urinario se consideran siempre complicadas. Se recomienda tratamiento con nitrofurantoina o cefalexina por 7 días, o bien monodosis con fosfomicina. Para la pielonefritis en hombres se sugiere ciprofloxacina, ceftriaxona o cefixima si el tratamiento es ambulatorio y ceftriaxona o amikacina si es hospitalario. Se sugiere tratar las prostatitis bacterianas agudas con ceftriaxona o gentamicina. En cuanto a las prostatitis bacterianas crónicas, si bien su tratamiento de elección hasta hace poco fueron las fluoroquinolonas, la creciente resistencia y ciertas dudas sobre la seguridad de estas drogas obligan a considerar el uso de alternativas como fosfomicina.


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. In women, cystitis can be treated with nitrofurantoin, cephalexin or fosfomycin, while trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole and fluoroquinolones are not recommended; pyelonephritis can be treated with ciprofloxacin, cefixime or cephalexin in ambulatory women or ceftriaxone, cefazolin or amikacin in those who are hospitalized. In men, urinary tract infections are always considered complicated; nitrofurantoin or cephalexin are recommended for 7 days, alternatively fosfomycin should be given in a single dose. In men, ciprofloxacin, ceftriaxone or cefixime are suggested for pyelonephritis on ambulatory treatment whereas ceftriaxone or amikacin are recommended for hospitalized patients. Acute bacterial prostatitis can be treated with ceftriaxone or gentamicin. Fluoroquinolones were the choice treatment for chronic bacterial prostatitis until recently; they are no longer recommended due to the increasing resistance and recent concerns regarding the safety of these drugs; alternative antibiotics such as fosfomycin are to be considered.

ABSTRACT

Las infecciones del tracto urinario afectan al ser humano a lo largo de su vida y son frecuentes tanto en el ámbito comunitario como en el nosocomial. El objetivo de este estudio fue Identificar los principales agentes etiológicos y el perfil de resistencia a los antibióticos, presentado por los microorganismos más frecuentemente aislados de los urocultivos de pacientes con infección urinaria que acudieron al Laboratorio "Luis Razetti" Mérida -Venezuela, entre enero y junio de 2015. Este estudio fue de tipo observacional, de corte transversal y descriptivo. La población y muestra estuvo conformada por 149 pacientes de ambos sexos, cuyas muestras de orina fueron procesadas utilizado el método del asa calibrada y la identificación bacteriana mediante pruebas bioquímicas convencionales. La susceptibilidad antimicrobiana se determinó a través del método de difusión del disco en agar. Escherichia coli predominó en un 84,6 %, seguido de Proteus mirabilis y Enterococcus faecalis, ambos con (4,7 %). Los porcentajes más altos de resistencia para los aislados de E. coli, se observaron para ampicilina (92,06 %), ampicilina/sulbactam (68,25 %), ácido nalidíxico (38,89 %), ciprofloxacina (38,89 %) y trimetroprim­sulfametoxazol (54,76 %); y presentaron altos niveles de sensibilidad a Nitrofurantoína (80,95 %). El 5,15 % de las cepas de E. coli se mostraron fenotípicamente productoras de belalactamasa de espectro extendido y el 35,29 % de las otras Enterobacteriaceae aisladas, presentaron un perfil fenotípico compatible con la producción de la enzima Inhibitory-resistant TEM (IRT). Es importante destacar que estos estudios permiten conocer la etiología a de infecciones urinarias en la comunidad, así como los perfiles de resistencia y sensibilidad a nivel local, datos relevantes para establecer pautas de tratamiento empírico adaptadas a cada medio.


Urinary tract infections affect the human being throughout his life and are among the most frequent in both the community and nosocomial settings. The Aim of this study was to Identify the main etiological agents and antibiotic resistance profile presented by isolated microorganisms in the urocultures of patients with urinary tract infection who attended the Laboratory "Luis Razetti" Mérida -Venezuela, between January and June 2015. This study was observational, cross-sectional and descriptive. The population and sample consisted of 149 patients of both sexes, whose urine samples were processed using the calibrated handle method and bacterial identification through conventional biochemical tests. The antimicrobial susceptibility is determined through the disk diffusion method in agar. Escherichia coli dominated by 84.6 %, followed by Proteus mirabilis and Enterococcus faecalis, both with (4.7 %). The highest percentages of resistance for E. coli were observed for ampicillin (92.06 %), ampicillin/sulbactam (68.25 %), nalidixic acid (38.89 %), ciprofloxacin (38.89 %) trimetroprim-sulfamethoxazole (54.76 %); and had high levels of sensitivity to Nitrofurantoin (80.95 %). 5.15 % of E. coli strains were phenotypically producing extended-spectrum belalactamase and 35.29 % of others Enterobacteriaceae isolated had a phenotypic profile compatible with the production of the Enzyme Inhibitoryresistant TEM (IRT). It is important to note that these studies allow knowing the etiology of urinary tract infections in the community as well as resistance and sensitivity profiles at the local level, relevant data to establish empirical processing guidelines tailored to each medium.

ABSTRACT

Justificativa e Objetivos: Muitos avanços ocorreram em prevenção, diagnóstico e tratamento das doenças infecciosas, porém elas ainda são as principais causas de hospitalização e morte em idosos. O objetivo deste trabalho foi verificar o benefício do uso de antimicrobianos e sua associação com a implementação de outras medidas terapêuticas e com a indicação de cuidados paliativos nas duas últimas semanas de vida de idosos em internação hospitalar, a fim de subsidiar o desenvolvimento de modelos racionais de prescrição para este grupo. Métodos: Foi desenvolvido um estudo retrospectivo realizado pela análise de prontuários dos idosos participantes do estudo epidemiológico do tipo coorte "Desenvolvimento de uma linha de cuidados para o idoso no Hospital Universitário de Santa Maria" que apresentaram óbito como desfecho. Resultados: Dos 97 indivíduos avaliados, 89,7% (n = 87) fizeram uso de antibiótico nas duas últimas semanas de vida. Entre aqueles que utilizaram antibacteriano, 38,9% apresentaram sinais clínicos de melhora após o início do tratamento (n = 28). Assim, foi possível afirmar que não houve associação entre o alívio dos sintomas e o uso de antibacteriano (p = 0,377). Entre aqueles que se beneficiaram da antibioticoterapia, 46,4% foram indicados para infecção respiratória e 14,3% para infecção do trato urinário. Não foi encontrada dependência entre o uso de antibacteriano e as outras medidas terapêuticas adotadas (p = 0,057), nem com a indicação de cuidado paliativo (p = 0,065). Conclusão: Observou-se pouca evidência de benefício no uso de antibacteriano no grupo estudado, o que sinaliza a necessidade de uma adequação de plano de cuidado diferenciada para esse perfil de pacientes.(AU)


Background and objectives: Many advances have occurred in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases, but they are still the main causes of hospitalization and death in older adults. The objective of this study was to verify the benefit of antimicrobial use and its association with the implementation of other therapeutic measures and with the indication of palliative care in the last two weeks of life of hospitalized older adults, in order to subsidize the development of rational models for this group. Methods: A retrospective study was carried out by analyzing the medical records of the older adult participants of the cohort epidemiological study "Development of a Care Line for Older Adults at the University Hospital of Santa Maria", which presented death as an outcome. Results: Of the 97 individuals evaluated, 89.7% (n = 87) used antibiotics in the last two weeks of life. Among those who used antibacterial agents, 38.9% presented clinical signs of improvement after treatment initiation (n=28). Thus, it was possible to affirm that there was no association between symptom relief and antibacterial use (p = 0.377). Among those who benefited from antibiotic therapy, 46.4% were indicated for respiratory infection and 14.3% for urinary tract infection. We found no dependence between the use of antibacterial drugs and the other therapeutic measures adopted (p = 0.057), nor with the indication of palliative care (p = 0.065). Conclusion: There was little evidence of benefit in the use of antibiotics in the studied group, which indicates the need for a different care plan adequacy for this patient profile.(AU)


Justificación y Objetivos: Ocurrieron muchos avances en la prevención, diagnóstico y tratamiento de las enfermedades infecciosas, pero todavía son las principales causas de hospitalización y muerte en ancianos. El presente trabajo tuvo como objetivo verificar el beneficio del uso de antimicrobianos y su asociación con la implementación de otras medidas terapéuticas y con la indicación de cuidados paliativos en las dos últimas semanas de vida de ancianos en internación hospitalaria con el fin de fomentar el desarrollo de modelos racionales de prescripción para este grupo. Métodos: Se desarrolló un estudio retrospectivo realizado por el análisis de historiales de los ancianos participantes del estudio epidemiológico del tipo cohorte "Desarrollo de una línea de cuidados para el anciano en el Hospital Universitario de Santa María", que presentaron muerte como desenlace. Resultados: De los 97 individuos evaluados, el 89,7% (n = 87) hicieron uso de antibiótico en las dos últimas semanas de vida. Entre los que utilizaron el antibacteriano, el 38,9% presentó signos clínicos de mejora después del inicio del tratamiento (n = 28). Así fue posible afirmar que no hubo asociación entre el alivio de los síntomas y el uso de antibacteriano (p = 0,377). Entre los que se beneficiaron de la antibioticoterapia, el 46,4% fue indicado para infección respiratoria y el 14,3% para infección del tracto urinario. No se encontró dependencia entre el uso de antibacteriano y las otras medidas terapéuticas adoptadas (p = 0,057), ni con la indicación de cuidado paliativo (p = 0,065). Conclusión: Se observó poca evidencia de beneficio en el uso de antibacteriano en el grupo estudiado, lo que señala la necesidad de una adecuación del plan de cuidado diferenciada para ese perfil de pacientes.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Resumen Dentro de las infecciones nosocomiales más frecuentes asociadas a bacterias multi-resistentes y de peor pronóstico, se encuentran las producidas por Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Esta bacteria posee una alta capacidad de adaptación a condiciones adversas como por ejemplo el pH y la osmolaridad de la orina. Pseudomonas aeruginosa es uno de los principales patógenos implicados en infecciones nosocomiales y de pacientes inmunosuprimidos. Esta bacteria se considera un agente infeccioso oportunista que posee diversos mecanismos de patogenicidad, así como de resistencia a antimicrobianos, lo que contribuye a la dificultad en el tratamiento de estas infecciones. En la presente revisión bibliográfica se analizan la taxonomía, los mecanismos de patogenicidad y genes de resistencia de P. aeruginosa. Así también, se abordan los factores microambientales de la infección urinaria producida por esta bacteria, haciendo un acercamiento al entendimiento de las bases fisiopatológicas de esta infección.


Among the most frequent nosocomial infections associated with polyresistant bacteria and with a worse prognosis, are those produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. This bacterium has a high capacity to adapt to adverse conditions such as pH and osmolarity of urine. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is one of the main pathogens involved in nosocomial infections and immunosuppressed patients. This bacterium is considered an opportunistic infectious agent that has diverse mechanisms of pathogenicity, as well as resistance to antimicrobials, which contributes to the difficulty in the treatment of these infections. In the present bibliographic review, the taxonomy, pathogenicity mechanisms and resistance genes of P. aeruginosa are analyzed. Likewise, the micro-environmental factors of the urinary infection produced by this bacterium are approached, making an approach to the understanding of the pathophysiological bases of this infection.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective To analyze the prescription of antimicrobial agents for pregnant women admitted into the obstetrics service who presented with acute pyelonephritis. Methods Three cross-sectional studies were performed comparing the prescription of antimicrobials for pyelonephritis in pregnant women in the time periods evaluated (2010-2011: 99 patients evaluated; 2013: 116 patients evaluated; 2015: 107 patients evaluated), at the Hospital Fêmina, Porto Alegre, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The analysis was performed before and after the promotion of an institutional protocol for the treatment of pyelonephritis during pregnancy, and on a third occasion after the introduction of a smartphone-based mobile educational tool. Results The evaluation of the prescribing physicians and the adequacy of the prescriptions between the different periods studied revealed a significant increase in appropriate conduct for the choice of antimicrobial (2010: 83.8%; 2013: 95.7%; and 2015: 100%), route of administration (2010: 97%; 2013: 100%; and 2015: 100%), and interval (2010: 91.9%; 2013: 95.7%; and 2015: 100%), following the introduction of the protocol, and again after the implementation of the softwareapplicationwithorientationsontheantimicrobial treatment. Conclusion The use of specific mobile applications should be encouraged to attain a better quality and accuracy in prescriptions and to include strategies that not only reduce the risk of negative outcomes, but also improve the quality of care and treatment for maintaining the health both of the mother and of the baby.


Resumo Objetivo Analisar a prescrição de antimicrobianos para gestantes admitidas no serviço de obstetrícia que apresentaram pielonefrite aguda. Métodos Foram realizados três estudos transversais comparando a prescrição de antimicrobianos para pielonefrite em gestantes nos períodos avaliados (2010-2011: 99 indivíduos avaliados; 2013: 116 indivíduos avaliados; 2015: 107 indivíduos avaliados), no Hospital Fêmina, Porto Alegre, RS, Brasil. A análise foi realizada antes e após a promoção de um protocolo institucional para o tratamento da pielonefrite durante a gravidez e, em uma terceira ocasião, após a introdução de uma ferramenta educacional móvel para uso por smartphone. Resultados A avaliação das prescrições médicas e a adequação das prescrições entre os diferentes períodos estudados revelaram um aumento significativo na conduta adequada para a escolha do antimicrobiano (2010: 83,8%; 2013: 95,7%; e 2015: 100%), via de administração (2010: 97%; 2013: 100%; e 2015: 100%) e intervalo (2010: 91,9%; 2013: 95,7%; e 2015: 100%), após a introdução do protocolo, e novamente após a implementação do aplicativo com orientações sobre tratamento antimicrobiano. Conclusão O uso de aplicativos móveis específicos deve ser incentivado para obter melhor qualidade e precisão nas prescrições e incluir estratégias que não apenas reduzam o risco de resultados negativos, mas que também melhorem a qualidade dos cuidados e do tratamento para manter a saúde conjunta da mãe e do bebê.

ABSTRACT

O cateterismo urinário de demora é um procedimento amplamente utilizado em pacientes internados e está relacionado com altas taxas de bacteriúria assintomática e infecção do trato urinário. Para evitar essas doenças, a limpeza da região periuretral antes da inserção do cateter é uma importante conduta, com fins de reduzir a entrada de microrganismos dessa região através da uretra. Guias de prática clínica recomendam que o cateterismo urinário de demora deva ser realizado com técnica asséptica, porém não há consenso sobre qual solução é mais eficaz para sua realização, com vistas à redução das infecções do trato urinário e da bacteriúria assintomática. O objetivo é de avaliar o efeito da limpeza periuretral nas incidências de bacteriúria assintomática e de infecção do trato urinário com o uso de três soluções (água, sabão e gluconato de clorexidina aquosa 2%; gluconato de clorexidina degermante 2%, água bi-destilada e gluconato de clorexidina aquosa 2%; e povidona-iodo 10% degermante, água bi-destilda e povidona-iodo aquoso 1%) em pacientes adultos internados em hospital terciário submetidos ao cateterismo urinário de demora. Trata-se de uma pesquisa realizada em duas etapas: revisão sistemática da literatura e ensaio clínico randomizado sem mascaramento do pesquisador. Foi realizado em um hospital de grande porte de Belo Horizonte ­ Minas Gerais. A população foi constituída por pacientes internados e que foram elegíveis para serem submetidos ao cateterismo urinário de demora. A amostra foi de 28 pacientes, sendo alocados aleatoriamente nos grupos: sabão (n=11) e grupo antisséptico (n=17). Uroculturas foram coletadas no momento da inserção e 24h após. A incidência global de bacteriúria assintomática foi de 7,14%, no grupo sabão foi de 9,1% e no grupo antissépticos foi de 5,9%. Não houve nenhum caso de infecção do trato urinário. A regressão logística mostrou que não há diferenças estatisticamente significativas nas incidências de bacteriúria assintomática quando realizada a limpeza com sabão ou antisséptico (clorexidina ou povidona-iodo). A redução do risco relativo mostrou uma redução de 36% de adquirir bacteriúria assintomática.(AU)


Indwelling urinary catheterization is a procedure that is used in inpatients and is related to high rates of asymptomatic bacteriuria and urinary tract infection. To prevent these diseases, cleaning the periurethral region prior to catheter insertion is an important approach, reducing the entry of microorganisms from this region through the urethra. Clinical practice guidelines recommend that indwelling urinary catheterization should be performed with aseptic technique, but there is no consensus on which solution is most effective for reducing urinary tract infections. The objective is to evaluate the effect of periurethral cleansing on the incidence of asymptomatic bacteria and urinary tract infections with the use of three solutions (water, soap and 2% aqueous chlorhexidine gluconate; chlorhexidine gluconate 2%, distilled water and 2% aqueous chlorhexidine; and 10% povidone-iodine, distilled water and 1% aqueous povidone-iodine) in adult patients admitted to a tertiary hospital submitted to the indwelling urinary catheterization. This is a two-step research: systematic literature review and randomized clinical trial without researcher's masking. It was performed in a large hospital in Belo Horizonte - MG. The population was composed by inpatients who were eligible to undergo indwelling urinary catheterization. A sample of 28 patients was randomly allocated into groups: soap (n = 11) and antiseptic group (n = 17). Urine cultures were collected at insertion and 24h after. The overall incidence of asymptomatic bacteriuria was 7.14%, on soap group was 9.1% and on antiseptic group was 5.9%. There were no cases of urinary tract infection. Logistic regression showed no statistically significantly differences in the incidence of asymptomatic bacteriuria when cleaned with soap or antiseptic (chlorhexidine or povidone-iodine). A relative risk reduction showed a 36% reduction from acquiring asymptomatic bacteriuria.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Abstract INTRODUCTION : Escherichia coli ranks among the most common sources of urinary tract infections (UTI). METHODS: Between November 2015 and August 2016, 90 isolates of E. coli were isolated from patients at Rize Education and Research Hospital in Turkey. Antibiotic susceptibility was determined for all isolates using the Kirby-Bauer disk diffusion method. These E. coli isolates were also screened for virulence genes, β-lactamase coding genes, quinolone resistance genes, and class 1 integrons by PCR. RESULTS: With respect to the antibiotic resistance profile, imipenem and meropenem were effective against 98% and 90% of isolates, respectively. A high percentage of the isolates showed resistance against β lactam/β lactamase inhibitor combinations, quinolones, and cephalosporins. PCR results revealed that 63% (57/90) of the strains carried class 1 integrons. In addition, a high predominance of extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs) was observed. The qnrA, qnrB, and qnrS genes were found in 24 (26.6%), 6 (6.6%), and 3 (3.3%), isolates, respectively. The most common virulence gene was fim (82.2%).The afa, hly, and cnf1 genes were detected in 16.6%, 16.6%, and 3.3% of isolates, respectively. Moreover, we observed eleven different virulence patterns in the 90 E. coli isolates. The most prevalent pattern was fım, while hly-fım, afa-aer-cnf-fım, aer-cnf, afa-aer, and afa-cnf-fım patterns were less common. CONCLUSIONS: Most of the E. coli virulence genes investigated in this study were observed in E. coli isolates from UTI patients. Virulence genes are very important for the establishment and maintenance of infection.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: To describe a case of neurotoxity associated to Colistin. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 29-year-old black male under treatment for urinary tract infection with identification of Klebsiella pneumoniae in urine culture resistant to all carbapenem antibiotics, presented visual turbidity, paresthesia on the face and upper left limb, slowed and discordant speech in the fourth day of Colistin use. Symptoms improved after reduction of the dose of colistin with adjustment for renal function, with complete reversion after discontinuation of the drug. CONCLUSIONS: Colistin-mediated neurotoxicity must be suspected in patients with altered mental status of unknown etiology and therapy promptly interrupted.

ABSTRACT

Las infecciones del tracto urinario (ITU) en niños con vejiga neurogénica, pueden producir alteraciones tanto morfológicas como funcionales, y desencadenan una respuesta inmune que no siempre es evidente. Las ITU son una de las principales causas de morbilidad y mortalidad. Resulta de suma importancia un correcto diagnóstico de las mismas, para un buen tratamiento y así evitar las complicaciones y secuelas que puedan ocasionar. El objeto del trabajo fue analizar la prevalencia y la etiología de las ITU en pacientes con vejiga neurogénica, y su patrón de resistencia. En un estudio descriptivo, retrospectivo se incluyeron 46 muestras de orina para cultivo de niños de 1 a 18 años, de ambos sexos, con vejiga neurogénica, que fueron procesadas en un laboratorio de microbiología. De 46 urocultivos, 19 correspondieron a varones (19/46) 41% y 27 a niñas (27/46) 59%, los niños tenían una edad promedio de 11(2. De estos 21 resultaron positivos (21/46) 46%, aislando en mayor proporción E. coli. La frecuencia de ITU en niños con vejiga neurogénica fue de 21/46, 46%, siendo el porcentaje en este tipo de pacientes mucho más elevado que en niños que no presentan dicha anomalía. Los uropatógenos aislados con mayor frecuencia fueron E coli y K pneumoniae. El uso de sondas y pañales, así como la mala higiene predisponen a estas infecciones. En este estudio se vio buena sensibilidad a la nitrofurantoina y cefixima(AU)

ABSTRACT

Summary Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of ceftazidime-avibactam in the treatment of complicated intra-abdominal infections (CIAIs) and complicated urinary tract infections (CUTIs) with meta-analysis method. Method: We included six randomized clinical trials identified from Medline, Embase, Cochrane Library, "ISRCTN Register" and "ClinicalTrials.gov" which compared ceftazidime-avibactam with comparison group. The meta-analysis was performed using Review Manager software version 5.3. Results: Ceftazidime-avibactam versus active comparisons demonstrated a statistically significant higher rate of microbiological response success on microbiological evaluable populations at the test-of-cure visit (95CI 1.10-2.38, p=0.02) and late-follow-up visit (95CI 1.09-2.23, p=0.02) for the treatment of CUTIs. Ceftazidime-avibactam versus active comparisons demonstrated a statistically significant higher rate of microbiological response success on EME populations at the test-of-cure visit (95CI 1.08-4.27, p=0.03) and late-follow-up visit (OR=1.75, 95CI 1.33-2.29, p<0.0001) for the treatment of CUTIs. Similar results were obtained at the late-follow-up visit (OR = 1.58, 95CI 1.26-1.97, p<0.0001) on microbiologically modified intent-to-treat (mMITT) populations for the treatment of CUTIs. We can find better eradication rates for E. coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae based on mMITT populations. In terms of AEs, SAEs and mortality, ceftazidime-avibactam had a safety and tolerability profile broadly similar to the comparison group. Conclusion: This meta-analysis provides evidence of the efficacy of ceftazidime-avibactam as a potential alternative for the treatment of patients with CUTIs, and CIAIs.

ABSTRACT

La infección urinaria no complicada en mujeres es un motivo frecuente de consulta e indicación de antimicrobianos. El objetivo de este estudio fue definir etiología y resistencia a antimicrobianos en episodios de infección urinaria no complicada. Este estudio prospectivo incluyó mujeres premenopáusicas no embarazadas, con infección urinaria no complicada, que consultaron en un hospital público y tres centros privados de las ciudades de Buenos Aires y La Plata (2011-2013). La edad media de 138 pacientes con infección confirmada por urocultivo fue 28 años. El diagnóstico fue cistitis en 97 (70%) y pielonefritis en 41 (30%). Las frecuencias de los microorganismos aislados fueron: Escherichia coli 97 (70%), Staphylococcus saprophyticus 24 (17%), Proteus spp. 10 (7%), Klebsiella spp. 5 (4%), Enterococcus spp. 1 (0.7%) y Pseudomonas aeruginosa 1 (0.7%). Las frecuencias de resistencia a antimicrobianos fueron: ampicilina-sulbactam 51 (37%), cefalexina 39 (28%), trimetoprima/sulfametoxazol 31 (22%), nitrofurantoína 17 (12%), gentamicina 10 (7%) y ciprofloxacina 7 (5%). La frecuencia de resistencia a ampicilina-sulbactam, trimetoprima/sulfametoxazol y cefalexina es mayor que las previamente publicadas en Argentina, lo que limita su recomendación para el tratamiento empírico. Una mejor comprensión de la etiología y la susceptibilidad antimicrobiana local permite el diseño de pautas más adecuadas para el tratamiento empírico.


Uncomplicated urinary tract infections rank among the most frequent bacterial infections in women in the outpatient setting and represent a major cause of antimicrobial prescription. The aims of this study were to assess frequencies and antimicrobial resistance of current uropathogens causing uncomplicated urinary tract infection. In a prospective multicenter study, patients were recruited in ambulatory settings of four participating hospitals between June 2011 and December 2013. We analyzed 138 patients that met clinical and bacteriological diagnostic criteria. The mean age was 28 years. Cystitis was defined in 70% (n: 97) and pyelonephritis in 30% (n: 41). Frequencies of isolated microorganisms were: Escherichia coli 70% (n: 97), Staphylococcus saprophyticus 17% (n: 24), Proteus spp. 7% (n: 10), Klebsiella spp. 4% (n: 5), Enterococcus spp. and Pseudomonas aeruginosa 1 (0.7%) each. The antimicrobial resistance was: ampicillin-sulbactam 37% (n: 51) cephalexin 28% (n: 39), trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole 22% (n: 31), nitrofurantoin 12% (n: 17), gentamicin 7% (n: 10) and ciprofloxacin 5% (n: 7). The levels of resistance found for ampicillin-sulbactam, trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole and cephalexin were higher than those previously reported in Argentina. A better knowledge of the etiology and local antimicrobial susceptibility allows the design of more adequate guidelines for empirical treatment.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective: Urinary tract infection (UTI) caused by resistant strains of bacteria is increasingly prevalent in children. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical characteristics and risk factors for UTI caused by community-acquired extended-spectrum β-lactamase (CA-ESBL)-producing bacteria in infants. Methods: This was a retrospective study performed over 5 years in a single Korean center. Hospitalized infants with febrile UTI were enrolled and divided into two groups (CA-ESBL vs. CA non-ESBL UTI). The yearly prevalence was calculated. Baseline characteristics and clinical course such as fever duration, laboratory and radiological findings were compared between the two groups. Risk factors associated with the CA-ESBL UTI were investigated. Results: Among the enrolled infants (n = 185), 31 (17%) had CA-ESBL UTI. The yearly prevalence of ESBL of CA-ESBL UTI increased during the study (0% in 2010, 22.2% in 2015). Infants with CA-ESBL UTI had a longer duration of fever after initiating antibiotics (2.0 ± 1.1 vs. 1.5 ± 0.6 days, p = 0.020). Cortical defects on renal scan and early treatment failure were more frequent in CA-ESBL (64.5 vs. 42.2%, p = 0.023; 22.6 vs. 4.5%, p = 0.001). A logistic regression analysis revealed that urinary tract abnormalities and previous UTI were independent risk factors for CA-EBSL UTI (odds ratio, 2.7; p = 0.025; 10.3; p = 0.022). Conclusion: The incidence of UTI caused by ESBL-producing bacteria has increased in Korean infants. Recognition of the clinical course and risk factors for ESLB-producing UTI may help to determine appropriate guidelines for its management.


Resumo Objetivo: A infecção do trato urinário (ITU) causada por cepas de bactérias resistentes está cada vez mais prevalente em crianças. O objetivo deste estudo foi investigar as características clínicas e os fatores de risco de ITU causada por bactérias produtoras de β-lactamases de espectro ampliado adquiridas na comunidade (ESBL CA) em neonatos. Métodos: Estudo retrospectivo feito por mais de cinco anos em um único centro sul-coreano. Neonatos internados com ITU febril foram inscritos e divididos em dois grupos (ITU por ESBL CA em comparação com não ESBL CA). A prevalência anual foi calculada. As características básicas e o curso clínico, como duração da febre e achados laboratoriais e radiológicos, foram comparados entre os dois grupos. Os fatores de risco associados à ITU por ESBL CA foram investigados. Resultados: Entre os neonatos inscritos (n = 185), 31 (17%) apresentaram ITU por ESBL CA. A prevalência anual de ESBL em ITU por ESBL CA aumentou durante o estudo (0% em 2010, 22,2% em 2015). Os neonatos com ITU por ESBL CA apresentaram maior duração de febre após o início dos antibióticos (2 ± 1,1 em comparação com 1,5 ± 0,6 dias, p = 0,020). Os defeitos corticais no exame renal e a falha precoce no tratamento foram mais frequentes em ESBL CA (64,5 em comparação com 42,2%, p = 0,023; 22,6 em comparação com 4,5%, p = 0,001). Uma análise de regressão logística revelou que as anomalias do trato urinário e a ITU anterior eram fatores de risco independentes de ITU por ESBL CA (razão de chance: 2,7; p = 0,025; 10,3; p = 0,022). Conclusão: A incidência de ITU causada por bactérias produtoras de ESBL aumentou em neonatos sul-coreanos. O reconhecimento do curso clínico e dos fatores de risco de ITU por ESBL poderá ajudar a determinar as diretrizes adequadas de manejo.
