Abstract

The diagnosis of microbial ureteral stent colonisation (MUSC) is difficult, since routine diagnostic techniques do not accurately detect microorganisms embedded in biofilms. New methods may improve diagnostic yield and understanding the pathophysiology of MUSC. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the potential of sonication in the detection of MUSC and to identify risk factors for device colonisation.
