  1. 1. Infants with urinary tract infection - renal damage and risk factors

    Författare :Iulian Preda; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :infants; renal damage; urinary tract infection; imaging;

    Sammanfattning : Background Identification of infants with urinary tract infection (UTI) who are at risk of renal scarring is an important clinical challenge with considerable economic consequences. Few issues in pediatric practice today have been so debated as the appropriate investigation of an infant with UTI. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Urinary tract infection in small children: aspects of bacteriology, vesicoureteral reflux and renal damage

    Författare :Svante Swerkersson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Children; Urinary tract infection; Vesicoureteral reflux; Renal damage; Bacterial count; Recurrence; Antibiotic resistance; Urine sampling;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a prevalent bacterial infection in children. The diagnosis is based on growth of bacteria in urine specimen and treatment is chosen out of knowledge of the present antimicrobial resistance situation. Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is a well-known risk factor for UTI in children. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Long-term follow-up of adult women with urinary tract infection in childhood

    Författare :Carin Gebäck; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ambulatory blood pressure; blood pressure; chronic kidney disease; DMSA scan; glomerular filtration rate; hypertension; pregnancy; renal damage; renal function; urinary tract infection; vesicoureteral reflux;

    Sammanfattning : Acute pyelonephritis is common in young children and can lead to permanent renal damage. Renal damage increases the risk of complications such as hypertension and decreased renal function later in life. For women with renal damage there is also an increased risk of pregnancy complications. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Ultrasonography of the urinary tract in children, with special emphasis on the urinary bladder

    Författare :Lennart Müller; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :child; ultrasonography; bladder; detrusor; myelomeningocele; urinary tract infection; permanent renal damage;

    Sammanfattning : Ultrasonography (US) is routinely used in children with urinary tract disorders. However, the bladder is usually evaluated with invasive methods, e.g. voiding cystourethrography (VCU) and cystometry. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Renal cell death in urinary tract infections : Role of E. coli toxins

    Författare :Ming Chen; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Pyelonephritis; Escherichia coli toxins; ERK; LPA; cell death; carbon monoxide; hemolysin; nitric oxide; heme oxygenase-1; dexamethasone; kidney development;

    Sammanfattning : Febrile urinary tract infections (UTI) are common bacterial illnesses in children. Several follow up studies have shown that 10-15 % of infants with pyelonephritis will develop permanent renal damage, i.e., renal scars, which in turn may lead to chronic diseases such as hypertension and renal insufficiency.
