3. Urinary tract infections in children. (Abstract)

Urinary tract infections in children. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) in children are among the most common bacterial infections in childhood. They are equally common in boys and girls during the first year of life and become more common in girls after the first year of life. Dividing UTIs into three categories; febrile upper UTI (acute pyelonephritis), lower UTI (cystitis), and asymptomatic bacteriuria, is useful for numerous reasons, mainly because it helps to understand the pathophysiology (...) of the infection. A single episode of febrile UTI is often caused by a virulent Escherichia coli strain, whereas recurrent infections and asymptomatic bacteriuria commonly result from urinary tract malformations or bladder disturbances. Treatment of an upper UTI needs to be broad and last for 10 days, a lower UTI only needs to be treated for 3 days, often with a narrow-spectrum antibiotic, and asymptomatic bacteriuria is best left untreated. Investigations of atypical and recurrent episodes of febrile UTI

Role of Vaccines for Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections: A Systematic Review. Recurrent urinary tract infections (rUTIs) can be a difficult condition to treat, and the role of vaccines is unclear.To systematically review the role of vaccines in the treatment of rUTIs, looking at efficacy, adverse events, and discontinuation from treatment.We systematically reviewed the role of vaccines for rUTIs using the Cochrane and Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses (PRISMA (...) % to 13% across studies, and treatment withdrawal or exclusion due to adverse events was reported in 11 patients.Vaccines seem to have a short-term role in the prevention of recurrent urinary tract infections with tolerable side effects. However, due to lack of uniformity of definitions and long-term follow-up, more work needs to be done with inclusion of other high-risk patient groups.In this study, we look at the role of vaccines for recurrent urinary tract infections.

9. Bacterial meningitis in febrile young infants acutely assessed for presumed urinary tract infection: a systematic review. (Abstract)

Bacterial meningitis in febrile young infants acutely assessed for presumed urinary tract infection: a systematic review. Urinary tract infections, the most common severe bacterial infections in young infants, may be associated with co-existing meningitis. There is no consensus on when to perform a lumbar puncture in these infants. Our aim was to quantify the frequency of co-existing bacterial meningitis in febrile young infants acutely assessed for presumed urinary tract infections. We (...) systematically reviewed PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library for studies including infants ≤ 3 months with suspected/confirmed urinary tract infections, who underwent a lumbar puncture. Two investigators independently reviewed articles for inclusion and extracted relevant data.

10. Is Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Therapy Non-Inferior to Antibiotic Therapy in Uncomplicated Urinary Tract Infections: a Systematic Review. (Full text)

Is Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Therapy Non-Inferior to Antibiotic Therapy in Uncomplicated Urinary Tract Infections: a Systematic Review. Amid growing antimicrobial resistance, there is an increasing focus on antibiotic stewardship efforts to reduce inappropriate antibiotic prescribing. In this context, novel approaches for treating infections without antibiotics are being explored. One such strategy is the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for uncomplicated urinary (...) tract infections (UTIs). Therefore, we conducted a systematic review of randomized controlled trials to evaluate the rates of symptom resolution and infectious complications in adult women with uncomplicated UTIs treated with antibiotics versus NSAIDs.We systematically searched PubMed, CINHAL, Scopus, Web of Science Core Collection, EMBASE, and ClinicalTrials.gov from inception until January 13, 2020, for randomized controlled trials comparing NSAIDs with antibiotics for treatment of uncomplicated

We aimed to compare the effect of IC with that of CC on the incidence of postpartum UTI, urinary retention (...) ) were included in this review. The meta-analyses indicated that there was no significant difference between the IC and CC group in the incidence of postpartum UTI (RR = 1.25, 95% CI: 0.91 to 1.71, P = 0.16), postpartum urinary retention (RR = 0.76, 95% CI: 0.21 to 2.77, P = 0.68) and postpartum hemorrhage (RR = 1.72, 95% CI: 0.60 to 4.95, P = 0.31).

Association of Toll-like 4 receptor gene polymorphism (rs4986790, rs4986791) with the risk of urinary tract infection: A systematic review and meta-analysis. Recently published studies had shown that there may be a potential link between the Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of Toll-like receptor-4 (TLR4), and the risk of urinary tract infection (UTI); however, no consensus was reached. To further understand the relationship between TLR SNPs and urinary tract infections, we searched (...) for related studies published in PubMed, EMBASE, and Web of Science before October 30, 2018, for further systematic review and meta-analysis.
