ObjectiveTo evaluate whether it is always necessary to test for the presence of asymptomatic bacteriuria (AB) in patients undergoing urologic surgical procedures, and if present, whether to treat AB with antimicrobial prophylaxis.Materials and MethodsAll patients who underwent urologic surgical procedures from December 2008 to October 2013 in a tertiary referral urologic center were considered for this study. All patients received antimicrobial prophylaxis in line with European Association of Urology guidelines on urologic infections. AB was diagnosed if â¥105 colony-forming units/mL were cultured. The population was subdivided into 2 groups: group A, patients with preoperative AB, and group B, patients without AB. Data on postoperative symptomatic urinary tract infections (UTIs) were compared for the 2 groups.ResultsA total of 2201 patients were considered eligible for this study and were analyzed; 668 (30.4%) patients were found to harbor AB (group A), and 1533 (69.6%) patients did not have AB (group B). Microbiologically verified symptomatic postoperative UTIs occurred in 198 patients (8.9%). No difference in terms of overall rate of postoperative symptomatic UTI was found between the 2 groups (group A: 70 [10.4%] and group B: 128 [8.3%]; OR: 1.28 95%CI 0.94-1.74; Pâ=â.12), as well as in terms of urosepsis (group A: 2 [0.30%] and group B: 4 [0.26%]; Pâ=â1.0).ConclusionIn patients undergoing urologic surgical procedures who are receiving antimicrobial prophylaxis in accordance with European Association of Urology guidelines, the preoperative presence of AB in this study was not associated with a higher incidence of postoperative symptomatic UTI.
