Anterior urethral injuries, although rare, may be associated with substantial long-term morbidity.

Those that occur due to rapid deceleration injury are usually best treated by suprapubic diversion and delayed reconstruction because of associated injuries and concomitant contusion of the supporting spongiosum.
