Abstract

Genitourinary (GU) trauma is divided into upper urinary tract, lower urinary tract, and genital injuries, and should be considered in patients with severe lower abdominal blunt trauma and pelvic fracture. Urinary tract injury should also be suspected for all patients with penetrating injuries to the abdomen, chest, or flank until proven otherwise.
