Authors have defined the predisposing factors of urinary tract infections on the basis of analysis of 56 patients with indwelling double J stents. During the investigations they detected bacteriuria in 11,7% of cases as far as the foreign body was removed in 30 days, and in 45% of cases when it was removed in more than 30 days (p<0.0001). The developing bacteriuria rate after stent insertion was significantly lower in the group of patients who didn't have systemic disease:12.5% vs. 30% (p<0.0001). The bacteriuria rate was highest in patients with diabetes mellitus at the same time (57%), next were patients suffering from cancer as basic disease (45%) and the last were the ones with chronic renal failure (33%). The colonisation grade of the double J stent tips was significantly higher as well, when the catheters were removed in more than 30 days:42.8% vs. 17.85% (more frequent in women than men:67.6% vs. 32.4%).
