Urogenital Trauma
Amit Sarnaik MD
Scottish Rite Pediatric Emergency
Genitourinary trauma
• In multiple trauma patients, GU trauma is
second in frequency (#1 CNS)- 10%
• MOI: Blunt (90%) vs. Penetrating
– MVC: most common
– Falls, Sport related and direct blow
– Most common Injury is to the kidney – 47%
• Associated intra-peritoneal injuries
– Penetrating – 80% vs. Blunt
Pediatric considerations
• Renal injury more likely in children
– Larger proportion of kidney to abdominal size
– Retained fetal lobulations: Easier parenchymal
– Weaker abdominal muscles
– Less ossified thoracic cage
– Less developed perirenal fat and fascia
Renal trauma - Presentation
• Localized signs: flank tenderness, flank hematoma, or
palpable flank mass.
• Non specific: Abdominal tenderness, rigidity, paralytic ileus or
hypovolemic shock
• Gross hematuria is the hallmark of severe injury: absent in
50% of patients with vascular pedicle injuries and 30%
penetrating injuries
• Most common injuries
– Parenchymal contusions and hematomas (60-90%)
– Lacerations are less common (10%)
Classification of renal trauma
• Grade I : Contusion or subcapsular nonexpanding
• Grade II : Nonexpanding hematoma confined to the
retroperitoneum or lac <1 cm
• Grade III : Lac >1 cm into the renal cortex without
collecting system rupture or urinary extravasation
• Grade IV : Lac extending into the collecting system or
renal vascular injuries with contained hemorrhage
• Grade V : Shattered kidneys or avulsions of renal
hilum with devascularized kidneys
Grade 1,2 and 3 renal injuries
Grade 4 and 5 injuries
Renal Trauma: Management
Evaluate GU system only after life threatening
conditions have been indentified
• A urinalysis should be obtained in all patients with
multisystem trauma or suspected isolated renal
• Pediatric renal trauma patient – order a CXR,
Abdominal and Pelvis X-rays
Renal trauma: Hematuria and
Kidney injury
• Gross hematuria
• Microscopic hematuria with major
mechanisms or signs of renal injury
• Hematuria of > 20 RBC per hpf
• Microscopic hematuria with shock ( relied
upon in adult EM)
Imaging of renal trauma
• CT with contrast is preferred study at most
trauma centers - 98% sensitivity
– Detection of associated injuries
– 3-D views and no dependence on renal
• Ultrasound – 70% sensitivity
– Not accepted for the staging of renal trauma
– Has been used for long term follow up
– Alternative modality for the evaluation of the
pregnant trauma patient
Imaging in renal trauma
• IVP : used only if CT is not readily available
– Provides rapid information about the overall
functional and anatomic integrity of both kidneys
– It can be obtained in the ED in an unstable patient
or in the OR prior to surgery
• IVP will only diagnose 5% contusions, 50%
lacs, 29% pedicle injuries
Blunt Uro-genital trauma: Diagnostic
• Blunt and Unstable:
– Limited IVP
• Blunt & Stable, major renal injury, none lower
– CT scan
• Blunt and Stable, Findings of lower tract injury
– Cystourethrogram +/- upper tract evaluation
• Blunt and Stable, Minor renal injury
(Microscopic hematuria)
– No CT, serial UA, delayed imaging
Management of blunt renal trauma
Grades 1,2 and 3
• Strict bed rest, analgesia, prophylactic antibiotics.
• Limited activity on resolution of gross hematuria
Grades 4,5 – Management is controversial.
• Depends upon hemodynamic status, degree of
urinary extravasation, renal bleeding, associated
• Many patients are being managed with serial
hematocrit, vital signs and broad spectrum
Complications from non operative
management of Grade 4 and 5 renal
Patients managed nonoperatively have a 50%
complication rate
• Persistent/recurrent hemorrhage
• Extravasation and urinoma formation
• Infection
• Infarction
• Segmental hydronephrosis
Penetrating Uro-genital trauma:
Diagnostic evaluation
• Penetrating and Unstable
– Limited IVP
• Penetrating & Stable, upper tract injury
– CT scan
• Penetrating & Stable, findings of lower tract
– Cystourethrogram +/- upper tract evaluation
Management of Penetrating renal
• Vascular injury
• Hemodynamic instability
• Urinary extravasation
Non surgical
• Hemodynamically stable + Isolated Low grade
• Delayed bleeding may occur in 24% with grade 3-4
Complications of renal trauma
Short Term
• Delayed hemorrhage
• Urinary extravasation
• Abscess formation
• Obstruction secondary to clot formation
Long Term
• HTN (<5%)
• Hydronephrosis
• Arteriovenous fistulas
• Renal intestinal fistula
• Stone formation
Ureteral Trauma
• Ureteral injuries are uncommon, <1% of all urologic
• Blunt trauma usually involves the UPJ
• Suspect ureter trauma if fracture of the transverse
process of lumbar vertebra
• Penetrating injuries along the ureter – 90%
association with other intra-abdominal injuries
• Stab wounds rarely cause ureteral injury, but 50% of
GSW to abdomen have injury to the ureter
Ureteral trauma: Diagnosis
• Diagnosis is difficult, >50% not diagnosed in
1st 24h
• PE may be unremarkable, urinalysis is
• Delayed diagnosis may manifest as fever,
chills, lethargy, leukocytosis, pyuria,
bacteriuria, flank mass/pain, fistulas,
Ureteral Trauma
• CT and IVP has low sensitivity (33%)
• Retrograde pyelogram may be more reliable
Bladder Trauma
• Blunt trauma secondary to MVC is most
common cause
• 80% of injuries associated with pelvic fracture
• Mortality rate 40% with bladder rupture (from
assoc head injury)
Classification of bladder trauma
• Extraperitoneal: associated with pelvic
• Intraperitoneal: caused by blunt trauma to
distended bladder.
• Combined: GSW.
Bladder trauma: Diagnosis
• Hematuria and dysuria typically seen at presentation
• >90% with bladder rupture have gross hematuria
• Diagnostic evaluation is indicated
– in patients who sustain pelvic or lower abdominal
trauma with gross hematuria
– inability to void
– abnormal GU exam
– multiple associated injuries
Evaluation of bladder trauma
• Pelvic X-rays
• Retrograde cystogram
– High suspicion and normal X-rays
– No catheterization if blood at the urethral meatus
or high-riding prostate
• CT cystography is recommended over plain
cystogram for patients undergoing CT for
associated injuries
Management of bladder injuries
• Extra peritoneal
– Contusion = conservative management, +/catheter
– Manage with urethral cath or suprapubic drainage
for 7-10 days.
– Large tear = OR
• Intraperitoneal - Go to OR.
• Combined – Go to OR
Urethral trauma
• Mechanisms
– straddle injuries
– Instrumentation
• More common in males
• Urethral injuries
– Anterior: Pendulous and Bulbar
– Posterior: Membranous and Prostatic
Blunt Anterior Urethral trauma
• Due to direct trauma, usually isolated, low mortality
• Bulbar injuries : common in straddle injury
• Blood at the urethral meatus is present in 90% of
anterior injuries
• Perineal ecchymosis (butterfly), inability/difficulty
voiding also possible
• Retrograde urethrogram is diagnostic
• Manage with 7-10 days of catheterization plus
Blunt Posterior urethral Trauma
• Occur with severe trauma and are associated
with other injuries (pelvic fx)
• Signs are blood at the meatus, hematuria,
perineal ecchymosis (butterfly),
inability/difficulty voiding
• Retrograde urethrogram is diagnostic
• Urology consultation
• Higher rate of complications
Female urethral trauma
• Urethral injuries in girls
Rare, due to mobile short urethra
• Associated with pelvic fractures or
• Managed with suprapubic drainage and
elective repair
Penile Trauma
• Blunt trauma from toilet seat is common
– Managed with warm soaks.
• Tourniquet injuries
– Exposure and removal of hair
– Urethrocutaneous fistula and penile loss
• Zipper entrapment.
Penile Trauma
• Penis fracture.
– Traumatic rupture of corpus cavernosum.
– Erect penis vs. hard surface.
– Patient may hear a cracking sound with pain and
– Most required surgical evacuation of hematoma,
ice packs, pressure dressing
• Lacerations:
– Involving the corporal bodies or the urethra
require urologic consult
– Superficial: simple repair
Perineal trauma
Most common is straddle injury
Vulvar hematomas = ice packs and rest
Superficial lacerations treat with sitz baths
Deep lacerations: Extension into rectum or
Straddle injury
• Injury is caused by the compression of soft
tissues against the bony margins of the pelvic
• Mechanisms:
– Bicycle riding
– Falls
– Monkey bars
Straddle injury: Appearance
• Straddle injuries typically are unilateral and
• Anterior portion of genitalia involved
• Girls:
– Mons, clitoral hood and labia minora anterior and
lateral to hymen
– Straddle injury to hymen and posterior fourchette
is rare
• Boys: Injury to penis or scrotum
Straddle injury vs Abuse
• Infant younger than nine months
• Perianal, rectal, vaginal, or hymenal injury
without history of penetrating trauma
• Extensive or severe trauma
• Presence of non-urogenital trauma
• Lack of correlation between history and
physical findings
• Abnormal genital secretions
Straddle injury: Treatment
• Visibility of injury
– Physician must be assured that the injury is
properly inspected
• Ability to void
– Inability to void
• Pain
• Large hematoma
• Urethral disruption
Treatment : Girls
• Vulvar hematoma: size dependant
– Ice packs, analgesia, sitz baths
– Increasing size: Surgical drainage
• Vulvar lacerations
– Heal by secondary intention ( lateral wall of
– Repair of perineal lacerations under sedation
• Vaginal injury: suspect if hymenal tear
– Lacerations: superficial or deep - Repair
– Hematomas: Observation
Treatment: Boys
• Urethral injury: Anterior vs. posterior
• Testicular injury:
– Depends on severity
– Assessment with US and Urology
• Scrotal injury
– Hematoma, ecchymosis: Ice packs
– Superficial lacerations: Repair in ED
– Hematocele and scrotal swelling
– Deep ( extension through Dartos): Urology
• Penile injuries
Penile Trauma: Direct Injury
• Causes and management
– Falling toilet seat
• Significant penile edema
• Injury to corporal bodies or urethra is rare
• Treatment: warm soaks, void in bath tub, Observation
– Blunt trauma: Blood at urethral meatus
• Urethral injury
• Diagnosis: Retrograde urethrogram
– Laceration to penile shaft
• R/O urethral injury and injury to corporal bodies
• Consult urology, urethrogram, exploration in ?? Cases
• Simple laceration: Repair with chromic catgut
Penile Trauma: Zipper Injury
• Most common genital injuries in prepubertal
• Typically involve the foreskin or redundant
penile skin and may occur during the zipping
or unzipping process
– Localized edema and pain are the most common
– Significant injury, including skin loss or necrosis, is
Zipper Injury: Treatment
• Mineral oil: Allows tissue to slide freely
• Entrapment release — The procedure for
entrapment release depends upon the site of
entrapment within the zipper.
• Entrapment of penile skin between the zipper
teeth (and not the zipper mechanism)
– Release by cutting the cloth of the zipper - results
in separation of the zipper teeth
• Local anesthesia or sedation usually is not
necessary for this procedure.
Zipper Injury : Treatment
• Entrapment of penile skin in the zipper
mechanism (which consists of two faceplates
connected with a median bar)- More difficult
to release.
• Sedation may be necessary to complete
• Local anesthesia usually is adequate for older
Zipper injury: Treatment
• Recommended technique:
– The median bar may be cut with wire cutters, bone
cutters, or a mini hacksaw
– Allows the mechanism to fall apart and leads to release of
the entrapped skin
• Alternate technique:
– Thin blade of a small flathead screwdriver
– Placed between the faceplates on the side of the
mechanism in which the penile skin is not entrapped.
– The blade is then rotated toward the median bar
– This widens the gap between the faceplates, releasing the
Penile Injury: Strangulation
• Constriction ring: Hair, fiber, thread
• Pitfall: Local edema may hide the ring of hair
• Treatment:
– Division of hair &release of constriction
– May require GA and urologic consultation
• Complication
– Urethrocutaneous fistula
– Penile loss: case report
• Occasional report as form of sexual abuse
Scrotal Trauma
• Mechanisms of trauma
– Direct blow
– Straddle injury: Impingement of testis against the
pubic bone
– Penetrating injuries: Rare
• Spectrum of scrotal trauma
– Minimal scrotal swelling to testicular rupture with
blood filled scrotum
• Suspicion of testicular rupture: surgical exploration
– Best salvage of ruptured testis
– Rare presentation of testicular torsion
Scrotal trauma: hematocele
• Hematocele: Blood within tunica vaginalis
– May represent severe testicular injury
– Ecchymosis of scrotal wall in setting of trauma
– Sonography:
• Identifies fluid collection in the tunica
• Blood more echogenic than hydrocele fluid
– Treatment: Surgical exploration to drain large
hematoceles as well as testicular repair if ruptured
Scrotal trauma spectrum
• Intratesticular hematoma or laceration of tunica
– Ultrasound : Assists to determine location of blood
– Intact Tunica: Surgery not necessary
– ? Testicular laceration: surgical exploration
• Traumatic epididymitis
– Results from blunt trauma
– Initial pain, then pain free, then pain returns
– Scrotal erythema, edema, epididymal tenderness
– Ultrasound: rules out severe injury
– Treatment: Supportive
• Scrotal laceration
– Evaluate testis and spermatic cord for injury
– Simple laceration: Hemostasis and chromic sutures
Scrotal injuries: Urology
• Large testicular hematoma may need drainage
– Delay in surgery may lead to ischemic necrosis,
secondary infections, disruption of testicular
• Testicular rupture with tear of the tunica
albuginea requires surgical exploration.
– Salvage more likely if repaired within 24h
• Laceration to scrotum through the dartos
• All penetrating testicular injuries
Testicular torsion
• Scrotal pain and swelling – common
presenting symptom in ED
• Acute scrotum
• Acute testicular torsion – rapid pickup is vital
for salvage
– Salvage rate drops when repair delayed beyond 68 hours after acute event
• Acute scrotum – Testicular torsion is the
working diagnosis until proven otherwise
Testicular torsion: Stats
• 1 out of every 4000 males before age of 25
• Peak incidence: 13 years of age
• Another peak:
– Perinatal period.
– Newborn born with hard, necrotic testis.
– Hard or discolored scrotum
– Salvage not possible
• Rare: after age of 30 yrs
Testicular torsion: Cause
• Basic mechanism – Movement of testis that is
abnormally fixed in tunica vaginalis
• Infants: Lack of fixation of tunics in the
scrotum. Extravaginal torsion
• Bell Clapper deformity: Tunica vaginalis has
abnormally high attachment to spermatic cord
– Testis not fixed. Prone to torsion
– Allows testis to lie transversely and rotate
– Found in most cases. Commonly bilateral
Bell Clapper deformity
Testicular torsion: Clinical features
• PAT:
– Appearance: Crying, irritable, uncomfortable
– WOB: Normal
– Circulation: Normal systemic
• Other findings:
History of pain in past
Acute onset pain in groin or scrotum
Nausea and vomiting
High riding testis, Transverse lie of testis
Diffuse testicular pain, absent cremasteric reflex
Testicular torsion: Complications
• Delay in re-establishing blood flow – loss of
testicular function
• Delay
– Patient presentation
– Physician taking his or her time to establish
• Testicular salvage:
– 80-90%: within 8 hours of acute pain
– <20%: for delay up to 12 hrs
Diagnostic studies
• Lab studies: not sufficient to make definitive
• Ultrasound with Doppler:
– Readily available, non invasive and highly accurate
– Any uncertainty: Indicates surgical exploration
• Testicular scintigraphy:
– PPV of 95%
– Access may not be easy at all times
• High index of suspicion: Do not delay surgical
procedure to confirm suspicion with a diagnostic
Testicular torsion: Differential
Torsion of appendix testis or appendix epididymis
Incarcerated Inguinal Hernia
Scrotal trauma
HSP/ Kawasaki disease
Scrotal cellulitis
Testicular tumors
• Analgesia: IV narcotic
• Manual detorsion: Can preserve testicular
viability and provide time
– Twist affected testis outwardly
– Successful detorsion: Relief of pain and visible
lengthening of cord structures
– More than 360o detorsion may be required
• Surgery
– Non viable testis: Orchiectomy
– Viable testis: Orchiopexy
– Exploration of unaffected testis
Torsion of testicular appendage:
Appendix testis or Appendix epididymis
• Average age: 10 years
• Clinical features:
– Sudden onset pain limited to scrotum
– No abdominal or urinary symptoms
– Point tenderness at superior aspect of testis in
early stages
– Blue dot: visible tender nodule in 20% cases
Diagnosis and Management
• Testicular scan and Ultrasound
– Increased blood flow
– Inflammation at superior aspect of testis
• Treatment
– Expectant
– Analgesics
• Any doubt about diagnosis
– Urology consultation for exploration
Phimosis & Paraphimosis
• Phimosis: Tightness of distal foreskin
– Cannot withdraw to expose the glans
– Not to be confused with penile adhesions
• Paraphimosis: Foreskin is retracted behind
glans and left there – swollen, retracted
– Venous congestion & edema: reduction to normal
position is difficult
Paraphimosis: Treatment
• Manual reduction: Application of ice and
steady local compression
– Local anesthesia: Penile block
– Pressure on glans (turning a sock inside out)
• Surgical reduction: Failure of manual
reduction (2-3 attempts)
– Surgical division of foreskin
– Circumcision: after a few weeks
• Prevention: Education of uncircumcised male
Improving success of manual
• Wrap the penis in plastic and apply ice packs
• Use compressive elastic dressings
• Apply direct circumferential manual
• Granulated sugar
• Hyaluronidase therapy - directly into several
sites of the edematous prepuce.
• Puncture of the edematous site
