Interventions for preventing recurrent urinary tract infection during pregnancy. Recurrent urinary tract infections (RUTI) are common in women who are pregnant and may cause serious adverse pregnancy outcomes for both mother and child including preterm birth and small-for-gestational-age babies. Interventions used to prevent RUTI in women who are pregnant can be pharmacological (antibiotics) or non-pharmacological (cranberry products, acupuncture, probiotics and behavioural modifications). So (...) far little is known about the best way to prevent RUTI in pregnant women.To assess the effects of interventions for preventing recurrent urinary tract infections in pregnant women.The primary maternal outcomes were RUTI before birth (variously defined) and preterm birth (before 37 weeks).

Using the ultrasound bladder scanner for the measurement of urinary residue, nurses are able (...) to evaluate the presence of urinary retention, monitor the volume and the excessive relaxation of the bladder and avoid unnecessary catheterisations. The association between urinary catheterisation and urinary tract infection is well documented in the literature.A meta-analysis was conducted.An extensive review was carried out by two researchers using multiple databases, including all articles published from 1 January 1986-8 February 2008.

Antimicrobial agents for treating uncomplicated urinary tract infection in women. Acute uncomplicated lower urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common problems for which young women seek medical attention.To compare the efficacy, resistance development and safety of different antimicrobial treatments for acute uncomplicated lower UTI.We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), the Cochrane Renal Group's Specialised Register, MEDLINE, EMBASE (...) antimicrobial treatment.No differences were observed between the classes of antimicrobials included in this review for the symptomatic cure of acute uncomplicated UTI. Fluoroquinolones proved more effective than beta-lactams for the short-term bacteriological outcome, probably with little clinical significance. Individualised treatment should take into consideration the predictable susceptibility of urinary pathogens in local areas, possible adverse events and resistance development, and patient preference.
