Abstract

Purpose: Iontophoresis kills microbes in vitro and, therefore, may bea useful method for eliminating microbial populations associated withcatheter-induced urinary tract infections in vivo. Materials and Methods: Catheters were modified to deliver current to platinum electrodesin the catheter tip. Female sheep were catheterized with this iontophoretic catheter and left ambulatory. In 5 sheep (experimental group) 400 mu A was applied to the catheter and withheld in 4 sheep (control group) for 20 to 21 days. The animals were then sacrificed. During the study, types and concentrations of bacteria, and physical and chemicalcharacteristics of the urine samples were determined. Results: Throughout the study, bacteria levels were reduced in urinary tracts of the experimental group (10(3) to 10(4) microbes per ml.) compared with thecontrol group (10(7) microbes per ml.), without extensive alterationsto urine chemistry or the sheep urinary tract. Conclusions: Since iontophoresis safely reduced bacterial populations in catheterized sheep,this technology may reduce or eliminate nosocomial, catheter-induced urinary tract infections in humans.
