Genitourinary trauma

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Following splenic and hepatic injuries, renal injuries are the third most commonly injured abdominal structure, affecting 10% of patients with major traumatic injuries.1,2 As with most injuries, genitourinary (GU) trauma is most common in those 20-35 years of age and in the male sex.1 Most GU injuries (90%) result from blunt mechanisms of injury with penetrating accounting for the remainder. The most frequent blunt mechanisms resulting in GU injury include motor vehicle collisions, automobile vs. pedestrians or bicycles, and falls; less commonly occurring after assaults and sports-related injuries. Genital specific injuries have a high prevalence of selfinfliction.
