INVESTIGATING THE EFFECT OF COTRIMAXAZOL AS PROPHYLAXIS FOR PREVENTING URINARY TRACT INFECTION CAUSED BY KLEBSIELLA AFTER THE CESAREAN SECTION IN HOSPITALS OF SOUTH OF Iran

Article excerpt

Background: Since one of the infections that might occur after the cesarean section is the urinary tract infections, this study aims at investigating the general prevalence of this kind of infection caused by Cotrimaxazol-resistant Klebsiella, as well as determining the effective genes on making resistance by PCR. It is also going to suggest appropriate treatment strategies in order to reduce treatment costs and drug reac- tions in patients.

Methods: We first took notes from the results of the U/A tests done on cesarean sectioned mothers in the hospitals and, as this study aims at preventing drug therapy without doing suitable tests, a urine analysis test was prescribed by the surgeon to be done 16 days after the surgery in order to find out whether the U/A tests alone can help doctors prevent the infection by doing post-operation prophylaxis based on their experiences. Hence, the patients' sterile median urine samples taken 16 days after the surgery were collected in the laboratory. The samples were cultured within 20 minutes and the cultures were put into the incubator at 37 °C for 24 hours. When the cultures became positive, the colonies type was detected using a diagnostic test and the antibiotic sensi- tivity of the colonies was investigated through the Antibio- gram test. …
