Vimala Preethi F | G. Nagarathna


Abstract: Prolapse and Urinary incontinence is a common and distressing gynaecological problem. Urodynamics is a valuable investigation in the management of urinary incontinence. However, urinary tract infection (UTI) is a known complication of catheterising the bladder. Aims and Objectives: Aim is to study the incidence of urinary tract infection after urodynamic study in women with pelvic organ prolapse. Study Design: prospective study. Materials and Methods: 60 consecutive patients presenting with pelvic organ prolapse attending clinics in OBG department at Father Muller Medical College from: November 2016 to april 2018 Results: In our study a total of 60 women underwent urodynamic study during the study period. All women gave a sample of urine on day three following the test. Most of these patients were postmenopausal and had higher degree of prolapse. Out of 60 patients 55 (91.66 %) had no UTI, 2 patients had only bacteriuria (3.636 %) and 5 patients had UTI. Incidence of UTI in our study was 8.33 %. Conclusion: The incidence of UTI was low in our study. This excludes the need for Prophylactic antibiotics but it is recommended that all women should be counselled about UTI during consent taking for the procedure.
