What clinicians can do to mitigate the risk of sepsis after ureteroscopy

“We should really try to adapt, know what we're doing to the specific patient based on their risk factors, prepare them appropriately, and understand that it's a dangerous complication. We should do everything we can to prevent it,” says Naeem Bhojani, MD, FRCSC.

In this video, Naeem Bhojani, MD, FRCSC, and Ben H. Chew, MD, MSc, discuss the takeaways of the studies, “Identifying predictors of sepsis post-ureteroscopy in a US-based population: results from the Endourological Society TOWER Collaborative,” and “What is the cost of sepsis after ureteroscopy? Results from the Endourological Society TOWER Collaborative.” Bhojani is an associate professor of urology, clinical research scholar FRQ-S, and endourologist at the Centre Hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal, Quebec. Chew is an associate professor of urologic sciences at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver.
