(5) Histopathologic features of pyelitis and nephritis permitted culture-positive kidneys to be categorized as exhibiting colonization only, pyelitis only, or pyelitis plus frank nephritis and demonstrated that some culture-negative kidneys exhibit signs of pyelitis and nephritis.
(6) The incidence of pre-eclampsia, hypertension, pyelitis of pregnancy and operative delivery was higher in overweight patients than in an equivalent number of patients of average weight also studied.
(7) Two cases of chronic cystitis, two of chronic ureteritis, one of chronic pyelitis and two transitional cell carcinomas of the urinary tract showed glandular metaplasia or focal mucin production.
(8) A patient with severe undiagnosed and untreated pyelitis developed mural masses in the renal pelvis and in the infundibulum of the upper pole calyx.
(9) Direct radionuclide cystography in a computerized method as described by Willi and Treves was used in adults with recurrent pyelitis but without evidence of obstruction.
(10) This is so common that it has been given a special name, "pyelitis of pregnancy".
(11) Two of 30 rats in the control group had similar changes associated with chronic pyelitis.
(12) It is termed emphysematous pyelitis when gas is confined to the collecting system, or emphysematous pyelonephritis if it also involves the parenchyma with or without the perirenal space.
(13) Of 5 dogs euthanatized at 3 to 4 months after surgery, 4 had bilateral pyelitis, and 1 had unilateral pyelonephritis.
(14) Twenty five patients with chronic urogenital infections (cystitis, pyelitis and prostatitis) were treated with Solco urovak infection which is active against Escherichia coli, Proteus, Klebsiella and Streptococcus fecalis organisms.
(15) Furthermore we noted a higher frequency of pyelitis gravidarum in this group.
(16) Emphysematous pyelonephritis is seen primarily in diabetic patients, whereas emphysematous pyelitis is recognized most often in association with urinary tract obstruction.
(17) In patients with neurogenic bladder dysfunction or megaureters, reflux began early during the bladder filling and attained higher volumes than in those with uncomplicated pyelitis, who had minor reflux appearing mainly during voiding.
(18) Although pyelitis was present, extension into the outer medulla and renal cortex seemed to be confined to nephropyelostomy tracts.
(19) There were 3 cases of complications due to preexistent disease (usually the indication for abortion) and 13 cases of nongenital complications (thrombophlebitis, thromboembolism, pneumonia, pyelitis).
(20) 3) Cefamandole was given to 22 children with acute pyelitis (1 case), acute pneumonia (19 cases), and meningitis (2 cases).
(1) The urinary concentration of these proteins was significantly increased in acute pyelonephritis compared with acute cystitis and asymptomatic bacteriuria.
(2) In 52 patients there were data for pyelonephritis, in 46 patients there was no renal infection.
(3) We have studied the serum and urine antibody responses to Escherichia coli in men and women with pyelonephritis, cystitis, and asymptomatic bacteriuria.
(4) A 70-year-old man suffering from nephrolithiasis developed acute pyelonephritis following extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy of renal stones.
(5) The aim of the study was to compare different methods of determining glomerular function in patients with renal scarring due to previous pyelonephritis and to determine the urinary excretion of beta 2-microglobulin in these patients.
(6) Infectious causes of acute renal failure in the pregnant woman include acute pyelonephritis and septic abortion.
(7) The results of ceruloplasmin, haptoglobin and sialic acid assays could be used as an index for the activity of the pathologic process, as well as in the differential diagnosis between pyelonephritis and glomerulonephritis.
(8) Sixteen of these infections were caused by a strain identical to the one that gave rise to the original acute pyelonephritis.
(9) The clinical history of acute pyelonephritis, avascular mass lesion of the kidney with ipsilateral pleural effusion (triad) seen in a female patient of child-bearing age is characteristic of this condition.
(10) In this system, retrograde E coli pyelonephritis developed from a combination of two factors: (1) reflux-induced damage to the renal pelvis so that E coli are introduced into the kidney and (2) hematogenous infection of the damaged kidney.
(11) US is inexpensive, easily obtainable in the emergency room, and sensitive enough to screen patients with pyelonephritis for complications.
(12) These studies indicated that the major antibody response in humans occurs after pyelonephritis and is directed against LPS.
(13) The animals with untreated infection had an antibody response that lasted a sufficient period of time to prevent acute pyelonephritis after renal challenge.
(14) Satisfactory results have been obtained in patients with normal as well as dilated ureters, with no serious operative complications, no episodes of pyelonephritis and no renal deterioration.
(15) Spells of hyperchloremic acidosis had occurred in 13 patients during the follow-up period and always coincided with attacks of acute pyelonephritis and renal deterioration, often accompanied by irregularities in the substitution.
(16) No difference was established regarding the occurrence of Rh incompatibility, pyelonephritis of the pregnant women, iron deficit anaemia, and gestosis during pregnancy.
(17) There were six patients with staghorn calculi and chronic pyelonephritis, four with pyohydronephrosis, eight with acute and chronic pyelonephritis, and two with xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis.
(18) Serum antibodies specific for the bacteria isolated from the urines of 41 patients with chronic pyelonephritis and 14 with asymptomatic bacteriuria were assayed.
(19) Pyelonephritis developed in five kidneys, two of which had outflow obstruction and two had bilateral hydroureteronephrosis before the UCA.
(20) Pregnant women with acute pyelonephritis should be hospitalized and treated with parenteral antibiotics.
