UTI in neurogenic bladder after SCI


UTI is amongst the most prevalent complications after SCI, both in the acute care as during follow up. The incidence of generalised infections originated from the lower urinary tract is much higher than in the general population. UTI creates many hazards for health and quality of life. In this course we aim to give an actual overview of what we know today of prevalence, causes, risk factors, ways to diagnose, ways to treat, ways to prevent together with more in debt knowledge about bacterial populations, antibiotic resistance, biofilm, use of microbiota.
