Minimizing the Risk of Urosepsis

1 in 20 kidney stone patients develop sepsis after URS*.

The cost of ureteroscopy increases nearly fourfold when patients develop severe sepsis post-operation. How can urologists better mitigate the risk of post-operative sepsis?

Bhojani et al identified 6 predictors of urosepsis to help urologists identify high-risk patients. These include diabetes, ischemic heart disease, a positive urine culture and previous stent placements. Additionally, sepsis risk also increases linearly with patients’ age, the duration of surgery and the extent of comorbidity. To minimize the risk of urosepsis, urologists should personalize treatments according to patients’ risk profiles.
