Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most frequent infection in the field of community-acquired infections. In this case, any type of intervention on the tract infection demands a detailed evaluation of the risk factors associated with complications after any urological procedure. Objective: Determinate the risk factors of urinary tract infection after urological procedures performed in the urology service at the HUM during the 2018. Materials and methods: A retrospective analytical observational study, type cases and controls; which will include 973 patients with a history of a urological procedure during January and December of the year 2018, identified and matched with a 1:1 ratio per surgical procedure. Through review of clinical histories and the creation of their own database for the analysis of variables of interest in study population. Result: The main risk factor for UTI in a patient who has undergone a urological procedure is the previous placement of the double J catheter and the additional risk of microorganisms with a habitual resistance spectrum, with initial antibiotic management. Discussion: We identified 154 cases of UTI (15.8%), with a mean age of 53 years, with a positive association of UTI risk with the use of the double J catheter (OR, 2.78; p = 0.000). In the same way, patients with a previous positive urine culture (OR, 2.55; p = 0.000) and according to the female gender as a significant risk factor presenting 4 times more probability of developing UTI (OR, 4.66; p = 0.000).
