Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter reviews our approach to preventing and managing infectious emergencies complicating urological surgery from our perspective as practicing urologists. We focus on the surgical site and urinary tract infections that are of most interest to practicing urologists. Because of limited space, we omitted important postoperative problems that are less relevant to urological practice, such as respiratory infections and antibiotic- associated bowel problems. When appropriate, we highlight studies of special interest and outline our own clinical approach to management of urological patients with postoperative infectious complications.
