UTIs are common complications after kidney tx. The aim of this study was to define the potential predisposing factors and the possible impact on graf function of sporadic late or recurrent UTIs.
We analysed 254 patients undergoing kidney tx, divided in two groups: group A (patients without UTIs or with early sporadic UTIs, 191 patients) and group B (late sporadic UTIs and recurrent UTIs, 63 patients). We performed Chi square test for dichotomous variables and with t-Student's test for continuous ones. Multivariate analysis was performed using logistic regression.
Group B presented an advanced mean age (50.2 vs. 46.1, p=0.023), an higher percentage of female (64% vs 34,7%, p<0.001) and polycystic disease (21.8% vs. 6.3%, p<0.001).
|GROUP A (n°190)||GROUP B (n°64)||p|
|AGE (years)||46,1 ± 12,3||50.2 ± 12.7||0.023|
|POLICYSTIC DISEASE (%)||6.3%||21.8%||0.000|
|BMI (kg/m²)||24.88 ± 3.82||25.67 ± 4.92||0.219|
|CMV INFECTIONS (%)||38.9%||51.5%||0.077|
|PRE-TX UROLOGICAL ABNORMALITIES (%)||8.9%||10.9%||0.638|
|POST-TX UROLOGICAL COMPLICATIONS (%)||7.3%||14%||0.107|
|ACUTE REJECTION (%)||5.7%||10.9%||0.165|
In conclusion, the most common predisposing factors of UTIs were the female gender, the advanced age and polycystic disease (unchangeable factors). The recurrent UTIs and the late UTIs are independent risk factors for reduced graft function after tx.
