Location: Room 252B

Introduction & Objective :

The risk of infections after endourological procedures for lithiasis is associated with positive stone cultures (SC). The presence of bacteria colonizing stones and the release of endotoxins during fragmentation may be the explanation. We assess the correlation between urine culture during stone fragmentation (SFUC), bladder culture (BUC), renal pelvic culture (RPUC) and SC; and their association with the risk of systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS).


Methods :

The study included 71 consecutive patients who underwent percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL, n= 43) or retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS, n= 28) from January 2017 to September 2017. Patients underwent a preoperative BUC. Samples for RPUC were obtained by renal catheterization. Stone fragments and irrigation fluid sample during fragmentation were sent for culture. We analysed concordance between cultures and association with SIRS.


Results : Overall, mean (SD) age was 54.1 (15.1) years and mean stone size was 15.7 (7.4) mm. Thirteen patients (18.3%) had positive BUC and received specific antibiotic treatment prior to surgery. Tab.1 shows distribution of positive cultures. Concordance between SFUC and SC species was found in 14/15 (93.3%) cases. The most frequently agents were E. faecalis and E.coli. SFUC predicts positive SC with 78.9% sensitivity, 98.1% specificity and a positive predictive value (PPV) of 93.8%. SFUC predicts the organism in SC with 82.4% sensitivity, 96.3% specificity with a PPV of 87.5%. SIRS occurred in 13 (18.3%) patients, sepsis in 3 (4.2%). All blood cultures revealed the same agent found in SC and SFUC. Patients who developed SIRS had a higher rate of positive SFUC (p=0.03) and SC (p=0.015) than those without SIRS, but this was not the case for BUC and RPUC.


Conclusions : The bacteria spread into the irrigation fluid is clinically relevant because it has high microbiological concordance with SC and is associated with higher risk of SIRS than patients with positive BUC and RPUC. This novel tool could be used to guide appropriate postoperative antibiotic treatment when a SC could not be obtained (e.g. small calculi or complete dusting).
