Abstract

Postoperative urologic infection can result in morbidity and mortality. The diagnosis and management of postoperative bacterial urinary tract infections are discussed. Rational choice of antimicrobial therapy is based on the frequency at which specific bacterial pathogens are isolated and the local antimicrobial susceptibility patterns of common isolates. However, antibiotic resistance within the hospital setting is becoming a widespread problem. The wide spectrum of the third-generation cephalosporins affords them antimicrobial activity against common pathogens, and they share the low toxicity of other beta-lactam antibiotics.
