Incidence and risk factors for positive urine culture at the time of pediatric urologic surgery

Incidence and risk factors for positive urine culture at the time of pediatric urologic surgery Purpose Urinary tract infections are relatively common in pediatric patients. Unrecognized bacteriuria at the time of uro- logic surgery puts patients at increased risk for perioperative complications. Many pediatric urologists obtain preoperative or intraoperative urine cultures prior to surgery, but data are lacking regarding rates and risk factors for positive intraopera- tive urine cultures. We conducted a retrospective cohort study of patients undergoing pediatric urologic surgery to examine factors associated with positive intraoperative urine cultures. Materials and methods Charts of patients of age 0–18 years from a single pediatric urologist with associated intraoperative urine culture results between 2008 and 2013 were retrospectively reviewed. Demographics, prior culture results, and informa- tion regarding possible risk factors of interest—history of constipation, hydronephrosis, neurogenic bladder, posterior urethral valves, ureterocele, UPJ obstruction, urolithiasis, vesicoureteral reflux, and circumcision status—were collected and analyzed. Results Seven hundred and fifty procedure encounters with associated intraoperative urine culture results were reviewed. Overall positive urine culture rate was 13.5%. Factors associated with increased odds of positive intraoperative urine culture included neurogenic bladder (odds ratio 26.3, p < 0.001), prior positive culture (OR 5.4, p < 0.001), female sex (OR 2.1, p 0.007), constipation (OR 2.9, p < 0.001), and urolithiasis (OR http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Urology and Nephrology Springer Journals

Abstract

Purpose Urinary tract infections are relatively common in pediatric patients. Unrecognized bacteriuria at the time of uro- logic surgery puts patients at increased risk for perioperative complications. Many pediatric urologists obtain preoperative or intraoperative urine cultures prior to surgery, but data are lacking regarding rates and risk factors for positive intraopera- tive urine cultures. We conducted a retrospective cohort study of patients undergoing pediatric urologic surgery to examine factors associated with positive intraoperative urine cultures. Materials and methods Charts of patients of age 0–18 years from a single pediatric urologist with associated intraoperative urine culture results between 2008 and 2013 were retrospectively reviewed. Demographics, prior culture results, and informa- tion regarding possible risk factors of interest—history of constipation, hydronephrosis, neurogenic bladder, posterior urethral valves, ureterocele, UPJ obstruction, urolithiasis, vesicoureteral reflux, and circumcision status—were collected and analyzed. Results Seven hundred and fifty procedure encounters with associated intraoperative urine culture results were reviewed. Overall positive urine culture rate was 13.5%. Factors associated with increased odds of positive intraoperative urine culture included neurogenic bladder (odds ratio 26.3, p < 0.001), prior positive culture (OR 5.4, p < 0.001), female sex (OR 2.1, p 0.007), constipation (OR 2.9, p < 0.001), and urolithiasis (OR
