OBJECTIVES Carbapenems are first-line agents for severe infections with extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing bacteria. The use of carbapenems, however, is associated with the emergence of resistant organisms. We investigated the effects of empirical therapy with non-carbapenems on urinary tract infections (UTIs) with ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae in a hospital where antimicrobial stewardship has been established. METHODS This retrospective chart review was undertaken at a… CONTINUE READING
