Washington: Women are more than twice as likely as men to suffer from urinary tract infections (UTI) caused by kidney stones, says a new finding.Henry Ford Hospital researchers also found significantly higher rates of complications following one of two treatments for the effects of urolithiasis, or stones in the kidneys and urinary tract, based on preliminary studies.Not only were the women far more susceptible to infection when they develop urolithiasis, the study also showed the rising incidence of sepsis, a potentially fatal inflammation triggered by the infection, the journal European Urology reported.The rate of related deaths, however, held steady, which the researchers attributed to "broad improvement in the management of sepsis and the critically ill," according to a Henry Ford statement."The research study was conducted because the rate of infection related to urolithiasis was not known, and evidence was unclear about the best method for treating it," said Jesse Sammon, urology resident at Henry Ford`s Vattikuti Urology Institute, who led the study.
