From: Risk factors and clinical relevance of positive urine cultures in cats with subcutaneous ureteral bypass

Culture N Variable Mean SD Median Minimum Maximum
Negative (follow-up) 18 Age (years) 6.09 3.14 6.04 1.67 13.1
Body condition score (/9)† 5.38 0.92 5 3 7
Surgical duration (minutes) 106 26.64 105 50 150
Anesthesia duration (minutes) 162 20.15 160 110 190
Hospitalization duration (days)* 5 1.28 5 3 7
Positive (follow-up) 10 Age (years) 5.11 2.48 3.6 2.5 8.9
Body condition score(/9)† 3.77 1,3 4 2 5
Surgical duration (minutes) 97 19.64 100 72 135
Anesthesia duration (minutes) 154.78 29.89 155 121 215
Hospitalization duration (days)* 6.22 1.56 6 3 9
  1. * There was a significant difference between negative and positive groups for median hospitalization duration in days (P = 0.022)
  2. † There was a significant difference between negative and positive groups for median BCS (/9) (P = 0.03)
