Open Prospective Study on Reduction of Bacteriuria Following Bladder Irrigation With Chlorhexidine
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01782404|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : February 1, 2013
Last Update Posted : August 13, 2015
This a prospective, non-controlled, open, multi-center study evaluating the reduction of bacteriuria after bladder irrigation with chlorhexidine in spinal cord injured patients with chronic bacteriuria practicing intermittent catheterisation (IC). Patients will be treated with chlorhexidine for bladder irrigation twice daily for a maximum of 7 days.
The study hypothesis is that bladder irrigation with chlorhexidine is efficient for a short term reduction of bacteriuria in patients performing intermittent catheterization (IC).

Bladder irrigation with chlorhexidine 0.2 mg/ml twice daily
- Proportion of patients with bacteriuria <10^3 CFU/ml [ Time Frame: 7 days ]Bacteriuria will be followed by daily urinary cultures, 3 hours after morning irrigation. The proportion of patients with at least one sample <10^3 CFU/ml within the 7 day treatment period will be evaluated.
- Time (number of days) to reduction of bacteriuria (<10^3 CFU/ml) [ Time Frame: 7 days ]Bacteriuria will be followed by daily urinary cultures, 3 hours after morning irrigation. The number of days until reduction of bacteriuria (<10^3 CFU/ml) will be evaluated. Maximum treatment period is 7 days.
