These findings are not supported by the data presented, which show relatively poor pooled likelihood ratios for ruling out UTI, and the pooled estimates should be interpreted with extreme caution given the variation between the studies.

180. Treatments for symptomatic urinary tract infections during pregnancy.

Treatments for symptomatic urinary tract infections during pregnancy. BACKGROUND: Urinary tract infections, including pyelonephritis, are serious complications that can result in significant maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality. There is a large number of drugs, and combination of them, available to treat urinary tract infections, most of them tested in non-pregnant women. Attempts to define the optimal antibiotic regimen for pregnancy has, therefore, been problematic. OBJECTIVES (...) : The objective of this review was to try to determine, from the best available evidence from randomized control trials, which agent is most effective for the treatment of symptomatic urinary tract infections during pregnancy in terms of cure rates, recurrent infection, incidence of preterm delivery and premature rupture of membranes, admission to neonatal intensive care unit, need for change of antibiotic, and incidence of prolonged pyrexia.
