Urinary Tract Infections


A urinary tract infection is defined as non-sterile urine in the face of urinary symptoms such as burning, urgency, frequency or blood in the urine.  It is much more common in women than men because of the anatomical differences among the sexes, most notably the much shorter urethra in women as compared to men.  Risk factors include infrequent voiding, incomplete emptying of the bladder, indwelling urinary catheters, an enlarged prostate in men and sexual activity in women.  Treatments include appropriate antibiotics and behavioral modifications to minimize the risk factors previously listed.  Surgery can be helpful for patients with correctable causes such as enlarged prostates, bladder prolapse and bladder fistulas (abnormal communication from bladder to vagina or bowel).
