Abstract

Hematuria is an important indicator of genitourinary tract injury after trauma. Correct initial evaluation of hematuria will affect diagnosis, management, and outcome of resultant injuries. This article presents recommendations for further evaluation when hematuria is found, depending on the mechanism of injury and clinical status of the patient. Once injuries have been adequately diagnosed and staged, appropriate management decisions can be made with urologic consultation.
