<< Emergency Management of Renal and Genitourinary Trauma: Best Practices Update (Trauma CME)

Disposition

Consultation

Any injury to the kidneys, ureter, bladder, or urethra should, at the very least, be discussed with and possibly evaluated by a trauma surgeon and/or urologist while the patient is in the ED. If urology or trauma surgery is not available within the hospital, transfer to a trauma center is appropriate. Most injuries to the upper GU tract do require admission, although a minority of the cases can be safely discharged from the ED provided that they have close follow-up after discussion with a urologist, are hemodynamically stable, and their pain is well controlled.
