Dr. Chew and Dr. Bhojani on sepsis risk post ureteroscopy

“What we found from that was the sepsis rate was about 5%... Putting that in perspective, it's about 1 out of every 20 patients that will get this complication,” says Dr. Chew.

In this interview, Naeem Bhojani, MD, FRCSC, and Dr. Ben H. Chew, MD, MSc, FRCSC, discuss the notable findings from their recent studies, “Inpatient, ICU admissions & readmissions associated with sepsis post ureteroscopy among a US-based commercial population” and “Yearly trends in sepsis and mortality after ureteroscopy.” Bhojani is a clinical researcher and associate professor in the division of urological surgery at the University of Montreal, and Chew is an associate professor in the department of urological sciences at the University of British Columbia and a scientist at the Stone Centre at Vancouver General Hospital.
