    Diaphragmatic injury occurs in less than 1% of all traumatic injuries, and is usually associated with injuries of the thoracic and abdominal organs. A delayed diagnosis of diaphragmatic injury can be life-threatening due to herniation and strangulation of abdominal organs into the thoracic cavity. Therefore, urgent surgical intervention is recommended. In children with multiple injuries, genitourinary tract trauma is second in frequency only to central nervous system trauma (Currarino et al. ). in the diagnosis of blunt traumatic bladder.

    About 10% of all injuries seen in the emergency room involve the genitourinary system to some extent. Many of them are subtle and difficult to define and require great diagnostic expertise. Early diagnosis is essential to prevent serious complications. genitourinary organs, and radiologic imaging plays a critical role both in diagnosing these in-juries and in determining the management. In this article, we describe and illustrate the spec-trum of injuries that can occur in the genitourinary system in order to facilitate accurate and rapid recognition of the significant injuries. CONCLUSION.

    The genitourinary system, or urogenital system, are the organs of the reproductive system and the urinary system. These are grouped together because of their proximity to each other, their common embryological origin and the use of common pathways, like the male , because of their proximity, the systems are sometimes imaged : D   The report, published this week by military researchers in The Journal of Urology, is thought to be the most comprehensive review of so-called genitourinary injuries in .

On the other hand, penetrating trauma describes injuries resulting from A piercing mechanism, such as gunshot or. Genitourinary trauma involves injury to the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and/or may result in high morbidity if not properly identified and managed. The diagnosis of genitourinary trauma typically relies on patient history, physical examination, urinalysis, and imaging (CT, cystoscopy, retrograde urethrogram).Renal trauma is most often an acute condition caused by a blunt abdominal.

Epidemiology of Genitourinary Trauma. Of the traumatic injuries’ patients hospitalized in the United States each year, 10% are found to have genitourinary injuries. Kidney. The incidence of traumatic renal injury in the general population is reported to be around per: Bullet shots to the lower abdomen are associated with increased risk of urinary bladder injury.

Abstract. The kidney is the most commonly injured genitourinary and abdominal organ. Renal trauma can be life-threatening and a high level of expertise in general surgery, traumatology, and urology is required to prevent mortality and reduce : Corinne Wanner Schmid, Daniel Max Schmid.

Injuries to the lower genitourinary (GU) tract alone are not life threatening, but their association with other potentially more significant injuries necessitates an organized approach to diagnosis and management. Because trauma is a multisystem disease, multiple injuries may be present in the trauma patient.

The genitourinary (GU) system includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra, penis, scrotum, and female genitalia. Of the million patients per year presenting to emergency departments (ED) for traumatic injury, about 10% of these traumas primarily involve the GU system, and another 10–15% of patients with abdominal trauma will have GU injuries as well.

1 GU trauma patients are. As such, in the multiply injured or unstable patient, evaluation for GU injury is deferred until other, potentially life-threatening, injuries are excluded, and the patient is stabilized.

The assessment and initial management of penetrating injuries to the upper and lower genitourinary tract are reviewed here.

ANATOMY. Knowledge of genitourinary system anatomy is essential to evaluating and treating traumatic urologic injuries. The GU system is divided into three regions, each with its own pattern of injury, 59 The upper tract includes the renal arteries, the kidneys, and the ureters. The lower tract consists of the bladder and the posterior portion of the urethra.

If the injuries of the genitourinary system remain unfixed within 1 year after the injury, there is higher probability of irreversible changes. Generally the isolated bladder trauma has a good prognosis, but in some cases can cause development of chronic pelvic pain [ 27 ].Cited by: 6. Other injuries often take priority over injuries to the genitourinary (GU) system and may initially interfere or postpone a complete urologic assessment.

Coordinated efforts between various services caring for the patient are crucial to ensure comprehensive care, and evaluation of the injured patient with possible GU trauma should not differ. Renal trauma was the most common type of genitourinary injury in this subset (75–80% of GU injuries), with bladder and urethral injuries a distant second.[16, 20, 22].

New to. Pelvic trauma is associated with high mortality rates. Blunt pelvic injuries from high-energy mechanisms are often associated with pelvic fractures and injuries to the rectum and genitourinary (GU) tract.

In addition, due to close anatomic proximity, penetrating pelvic trauma can injure the bony pelvis, rectum, and GU tract concomitantly.
