Short- and Long-term Mortality in Patients with Urosepsis Caused by Escherichia coli Susceptible and Resistant to 3rd Generation Cephalosporins
BMC Infect Dis
Mortality in patients with urosepsis due to E. coli is highly affected by age and comorbidities. Although mortality was higher in the EC-RC group, we could not demonstrate an association with inappropriate empirical antibiotic treatment. Mortality remained higher at 6 months and 1 year long after the infection resolved but was associated mainly with co-morbidity.
