Abstract [en]

The occurrence of bacteriuria in spinal cord injured patients with neurogenic bladder dysfunction who used clean intermittent catheterisation to empty their bladders was studied in order to examine cut-off concentration breakpoints for significant bacteriuria in this group of patients using procedures of the European Urinanalysis Guideline. 344 samples were cultured, yielding 285 isolates. Coagulase-negative staphylococci (27 %), Enterococci (25 %), Klebsiella spp (19 %), and Escherichia coli (12 %) were the most common findings. Bacteria grew at concentrations of 105-108 cfu/L, but only a few at 104 cfu/L. It is concluded that low bacterial concentrations in the urine (105 cfu/L) of patients with neurogenic bladder dysfunction who are on intermittent catheterisation might be as significant for bladder contamination with bacteria as a high bacterial concentration and can possibly be responsible for bladder infections.
