Urinary Tract Infections
Karger Medical and Scientific Publishers, Jan 1, 1997 - Medical - 142 pages
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are among the most common bacterial infections in humans. Their frequency varies with age, gender and socioeconomic background. Authored by scientists especially selected for their expertise in the field, this book reviews the latest research data and presents current concepts of the pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of UTIs. Modern methods of diagnosis and new antibacterial agents are evaluated, and recommendations for the choice of antimicrobial and the duration of treatment in different conditions are provided. Besides acute cystitis and pyelonephritis, special attention is given to complicated UTIs, such as infections in renal transplant patients, patients infected with HIV or patients on anticancer drugs and glucocorticosteroid therapy. Finally, areas are identified in which well-designed clinical studies and more basic research could lead to cost-effective improvements in the management of UTIs.
This book represents the latest international consensus on treatment and etiology of UTIs. As such, it will assist clinicians and health care professionals in curing their patients and should also be appreciated by basic and clinical researchers in urology, nephrology, microbiology and diabetes.
