Factors that contribute to infection of the urinary tract include structural defects and systemic disorders that interfere with the free flow of urine. Examples include congenital disorders, neuromuscular disease or spinal cord injury, and renal stones. Infectious agents that cause sexually transmitted diseases can also invade the urinary tract. Moreover, urinary tract infection is a constant threat and a major cause of morbidity in patients with indwelling catheters.
Antimicrobial drugs are prescribed for treatment of urinary tract infection. Some drugs such as trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole combinations (Bactrim or Septra), or kanamycin, can be given in a single dose, while others may be prescribed in one- to three-day doses or over a longer period of time.
Other measures are related to control or management of underlying systemic or structural disorders, meticulous catheter care for patients with an indwelling catheter, and prevention and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases.
