"Key points
  • GU trauma is common, occurring in 10% of traumas.
  • The classic teaching of high riding prostate, perineal hematoma, and pain with or inability to urinate is not sensitive for GU trauma.
  • Gross hematuria should prompt consideration of GU trauma.
  • Timing of contrast is critical to assessing the GU system for injury.
  • Conventional cystography is equally as sensitive as CT cystography.
  • A RUG should be performed prior to catheterization among patients with gross hematuria, inability to void, or a high index of suspicion for urethral injury.
  • Ultrasound is the primary imaging modality for the penis and scrotum."
