  2. aIncludes patients who were catheterized within 2 weeks of the first positive sample but in whom the catheter was removed before diagnosis.
  3. bAnalysis of catheter removal within 2 weeks before diagnosis. A: catheter was removed at some time in the 2-week period before diagnosis, but a catheter was in place at diagnosis. B: catheter was removed in the 2-week period before diagnosis, and there was no catheter in place at diagnosis.
