BLADDER INJURY∗ Traumatic injury of the bladder and urethra involves damage caused by an outside force.∗ Traumatic injury to the bladder is uncommon. Only 8 - 10% of pelvic fractures lead to bladder injury.∗ Injury may occur if there is a blow to the pelvis severe enough to break the bones & cause bone fragments to penetrate the bladder wall Bladder and injuries. 1.

Classifications • Urethral injuries can be classified into 2 broad categories based on the anatomical site of the trauma. • Posterior urethral injuries are located in the membranous and prostatic urethra. (major blunt +pelvic fractures). • Injuries to the anterior urethra are located distal to the membranous urethra. blunt trauma to the. Urinary tract trauma. Etiology and pathophysiology. Injury to the urinary tract may result from accidents, surgical intervention, and fractures. Clinical manifestations. Hematuria. Abdominal pain and tenderness. Medical management/nursing interventions . Urinary tract trauma may result from lacerations and contusions to urinary tract structures Anterior urethral injuries. Anterior urethral (below the urogenital diaphragm) injuries are often associated with straddle injuries, which are most often isolated . The bulbar urethra is typically the site of injury. Anterior urethral injuries are divided as following contusion, incomplete disruption, and complete disruption. 3
Any patient with a history of traumatic injury. should be assessed for involvement of the urinary. tract. Trauma to the urinary tract often is associated. with bladder trauma, or damage to the urethra, wounds to the lower abdomen, and anyone patient. who has undergone abdominal surgery. 3. Bladder Injury The posterior urethra or urinary bladder may be injured in patients who sustain fractures of the bony pelvis. The anterior urethra is most commonly injured by blunt or 'fall-astride' trauma. Penile fractures can occur during sexual intercourse. The urethra is involved in around 20% of these cases Urethral injury is a common complication of pelvic trauma; it occurs in as many as 24% of adults with pelvic fractures (, 1). Unless urethral injuries are associated with major bladder trauma, they are rarely life-threatening in the acute phase. However, they may lead to significant long-term morbidity (, 2)
The absence of contrast in the bladder suggests a complete urethral disruption, while contrast in the bladder suggests a partial disruption. 63 Patients with posterior urethral injuries should not undergo primary repair, since primary repair in this setting is associated with increased risk of erectile and urinary complications. 64 Anterior. Urethral injury is when the urethra is hurt by force. The mechanisms of injury ranges from gunshot wounds to self-inflicted sexual misadventures. Urethral injury can first be classified based on location as either anterior or posterior urethra 1) . Posterior urethral injuries are located in the membranous and prostatic urethra Other causes of bladder or urethra injury include: Surgeries of the pelvis or groin (such as hernia repair and removal of the uterus ). Tears, cuts, bruises, and other injuries to the urethra. Urethra is the tube that carries urine out of the body. This is most common in men. Straddle injuries Summary. Genitourinary trauma involves injury to the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and/or urethra.It may result in high morbidity if not properly identified and managed. The diagnosis of genitourinary trauma typically relies on patient history, physical examination, urinalysis, and imaging (CT, cystoscopy, retrograde urethrogram).Renal trauma is most often an acute condition caused by a blunt. patients included bladder injury, 10 (43.5%) of them ureter injury and 4 (17.4%) of them urethral injury have occurred. Ureters enter into the pelvis at the level where common iliac artery branches as internal and external branch and to the bladder after traversing from posterior of uterine artery
The urethra is usually injured in one of two ways: Pelvic fracture - The sheering forces of the pelvic fracture tear the urethra into two somewhere around the location of the prostate as the urethra travels towards the bladder.This is called a posterior urethral disruption. Often a procedure is done to try to realign the urethra so that it can heal together over a catheter Intraoperatively, limiting blunt dissection of the tissue planes surrounding the bladder is paramount to minimize risk of bladder injury. 13 In cases where suspicion is high for a bladder injury, backfilling the bladder with saline or dilute indigo carmine solution can help assess integrity of the lower urinary tract by revealing leakage at the. Bladder injuries are most commonly caused by blunt trauma, the attributable cause in 51-86% of cases. 8 Among penetrating injuries, GSWs account for 88% of injuries despite the fact that bladder injury is noted in only 3.6% of abdominal gunshot wounds. 9 Urethral trauma occurs most commonly due to blunt trauma. Straddle injury is frequently. Matthew D. Barber, in General Gynecology, 2007 Lower Urinary Tract Injury. Lower urinary tract injury, including bladder injury, ureteral injury, and vesicovaginal fistula occurs in approximately 1% to 3% of hysterectomies.There is an increased risk of lower urinary tract injury in women with previous cesarean sections, severe pelvic adhesive disease, pregnancy, malignancy, and those.

. Significant comorbidity may result and this is particularly the case for unrecognised injury. The increase in military injuries due to improvised explosive devices in recent confl The treatment for bladder trauma depends on the type of damage. Blunt injury is damage caused by blows to the bladder. This bruises the bladder. Penetrating injury is damage caused by something piercing through the bladder. This tears the bladder. Contusion. Most of the time, the bladder wall doesn't tear and is only bruised
Although urinary bladder injury is reported to be associated with a concomitant pelvic fracture, in such condition the blunt force trauma also place the bladder and urethra at risk for injury [11. urinary tract infections, blood in the urine, damage to the bladder, injury to the bowels. Side effects of the treatment post injection include temporary urinary urgency and pain with urination. Up to 25% of patients will also experience urinary retention, which means the bladder cannot empty completely on its own. It thi Other signs of injury are urinary/fluid drainage from a secondary trocar site incision, or fluid pooling in the abdomen/pelvis. If a bladder injury is suspected, the bladder should be filled with methylene blue-colored saline. The forcing out of fluid/dye indicates a bladder injury inside the abdominal membrane The urinary bladder, from the inside to the outside, consists of: The urothelium, also called the transitional epithelium, is the layer of cells that lines the inside of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Lamina propria consisting of connective tissue. Muscularis propria, the outer layer of muscle tissue Micturition can be visualized as a process in which neural circuits in the brain and spinal cord coordinate the activity of smooth muscle in the bladder and urethra. 1, 2 These circuits act as on-off switches to alternate the lower urinary tract between 2 modes of operation: storage and elimination. Injuries or diseases of the nervous system in adults can disrupt the voluntary control of.
Most urethral injuries result from diverticulum repair, anterior colporrhaphy, or instrumentation of the urethra. Some urethral injuries are caused by urethropexies and sling procedures. Urethral injuries, both direct and indirect, may damage the organ's sphincter mechanism and cause stress urinary incontinence 6.1 Clinical assessment. The initial management of all urethral injuries is resuscitation of the patient and the diagnosis of potentially life-threatening injuries. In the absence of blood at the meatus or haematoma, a urological injury is unlikely and will be rapidly excluded by bladder catheterization
Urinary bladder and urethral injuries usually occur as part of multiple injuries in polytrauma patients. These injuries are easily overlooked because the initial evaluation is focused on other life-threatening injuries such as traumatic brain injury, hemopneumothorax or hemoperitoneum The correlation between the anatomic site of spinal cord injury and real-time conditions of bladder and urethral function was assessed in order to provide a reasonable basis for the clinical treatment of neurogenic bladder. A total of 134 patients with spinal cord injuries (105 males, 29 females; av Catheterization. Catheterization Catheterization is accomplished by inserting a catheter (a hollow tube, often with and inflatable balloon tip) into the urinary bladder. Aninvasive procedure that should only be carried out by a qualified competent health care professional using aseptic technique. Indications Used for diagnostic purposes (to help determine the etiology of various genitourinary. 7.2. Urethral and Bladder Trauma from Product. Chemical and physical properties of the catheter surface are important when looking at risk for creating trauma from product. Compared to gel lubrication, catheters with hydrophilic coatings caused significantly less urethral trauma (haematuria), less removal friction, and less pain
Imaging used to determine location of the torn urethra Imaging used to determine location of the torn urethra. This is an example of the urethal imaging we obtain of a pelvic fracture urethral injury after the tear has healed, and we are ready to proceed with a surgery called posterior urethroplasty to re-connect the urethra back together Spinal Cord Injury often affects the urinary system and leads to bladder dysfunction or neurogenic bladder. Neurogenic bladder is when bladder control is affected due to the brain, spinal cord, or nerve complications. The 3 areas of the Central Nervous System that control bladder function are; Cerebral Cortex, Pontine Micturition Centre, an Guidelines for the evaluation of urethral and bladder injury. Approximately 10% of trauma patients sustain injury to the genitourinary system. This guideline describes the indications and technique for imaging the urethra and bladder after blunt or penetrating trauma. Indications for retrograde urethrography and cystography: 1
Urethral injury occurs as a result of blunt or penetrating trauma or iatrogenic injury. Because of the mobility and short length of the female urethra, injuries to it are extremely rare. MR imaging has been reported to be helpful in assessing the presence and extent of anterior or posterior urethral injury and predicting the occurrence of. In some cases, a catheter is able to be passed through the urethral injury into the bladder (primary realignment) at the time of injury, and the urethra is allowed to heal over the catheter. This realignment of the urethra decreases the risk of urethral stricture formation by about 30% and makes surgery for repair of the stricture, if it occurs.
Bladder injury can occur in a number of settings, from trauma to surgical procedures. Most bladder injuries require a catheter to drain the bladder for a period of time. In general, the bladder usually heals well, but severe injuries and injuries that involve structures related to urinary control may result in urinary incontince Bladder management Anyone can be affected by bladder dysfunction. Common healthcare issues that are associated with bladder issues are enlarged prostate, hormonal changes in women, obesity, constipation, diabetes issues affecting cognition such as Alzheimer's disease and other dementia, and neurological diseases and injury for example, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's. Bladder rupture, a relatively rare condition, is most commonly due to abdominal or pelvic trauma but may be spontaneous or iatrogenic in association with surgical or endoscopic procedures. In adults, the bladder is well protected within the bony pelvis. As such, the vast majority of bladder injuries occur in association with pelvic fractures, particularly those involving the pubic rami The incidence of bladder injury ranges from 0.36 to 1.6% in patients with blunt abdominal and pelvic trauma [ 1, 2, 3 ]. Motor vehicle accident is the most frequently associated with bladder injuries in 16% of the cases [ 4 ]. The urethral injury is even rarer, with an estimated incidence of 0.01-0.02% of all patients with blunt abdominal and. Urotrauma is a word used for an injury to the urinary tract or reproductive organs. It could be from any traumatic event or impact. It could be from a fall, car or bicycle accident, chemical or weapon. Organs that may be affected by urotrauma include: the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra, and genitals
Bladder injuries can result from blunt, penetrating, or iatrogenic trauma. [1, 2] The probability of bladder injury varies according to the degree of bladder distention; a full bladder is more susceptible to injury than is an empty one.Although historically, bladder trauma was uniformly fatal, timely diagnosis and appropriate management now provide excellent outcomes S4), generally involving T12 vertebral injury or below - results LMN bladder • Hence, the bladder becomes flaccid. • Now due to destruction of sensory nerve fibers from the urinary bladder to SC, overdistention of the bladder takes place. • So there is no inhibition of pudendal nerve and the external sphincter remains in contracted state Introduction. Spinal cord injury (SCI) is one of the most common causes of neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction, which affects more than 291,000 individuals in the United States and an annual incidence rate of 17,730 cases .It is estimated that 70%-84% of SCI patients have neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction .The effect of SCI on the lower urinary tract is variable and depends. A urethral stricture is a narrowing of the urethra, the tube through which urine leaves the bladder and exits the body. A scar in the urethra from swelling, previous procedures, injury or infection may cause a urethral stricutre and block or slow the flow of urine in the urethra. This often causes difficulty with passing urine, including. Ureteral injury has been associated with acetabular fractures but not with pelvic ring disruptions. 2 Simultaneous bladder and urethral injury occurs in 0.5% to 2.5% of pelvic fractures. 17,29,35 More importantly, as much as 35% 17 of bladder disruptions may be associated with urethral disruption and as much as 41% 17,24 of urethral disruptions.
Bladder Outlet Obstruction Lukman O. Abdur-Rahman Rowena Hitchcock Introduction Bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) is the impedance or blockage of urine outflow from the bladder into the urethra. This may be due to anatomi-cal or functional causes. The anatomical causes can be intraluminal, intramural, or extrinsic Urinary Tract Trauma Labmongers2 PPT Presentation Summary : Urinary Tract Trauma By Pretoria Hoyte Etiology Any patient with a history of traumatic injury should be assessed for involvement of the urinary tract Background Clinical Features. Suprapubic pain, blood at meatus, urinary retention Gross hematuria is present in 95% of significant bladder injuries . Pelvic fracture + gross hematuria = bladder rupture <1% of all blunt bladder injuries p/w UA with <25 RBCs/HPF; Bladder Ruptur Launch online presentation. Traumatic urinary bladder (UB) injury can occur with blunt or penetrating trauma, most commonly in the setting of motor vehicle collision, and delays in diagnosis are known to increase morbidity and mortality, often from complications of associated uremia, sepsis, peritonitis, metabolic imbalance (from peritoneal reabsorption of urine), and fistula formation The internal urinary sphincter is a continuation of the trigone/detrusor muscle which surrounds the bladder neck . When the bladder is filling, sympathetic innervation causes the internal sphincter to contract and close the bladder neck. The EUS is a striated muscle group located distal to the internal sphincter
place. This normal function of the bladder and urethra, collectively termed the lower urinary tract, is vital to health but can readily be disturbed by disease or injury to any of its structures. Failure to empty can lead to damaging overdistension of the bladder and back pressure on the kidneys. Stagnant urine becomes infected and in a damage Diagnosis and staging of lower urinary tract injuries Bladder. Bladder injuries are staged according to a system outlined by the 2002 consensus statement on bladder injuries 8 and are based on the appearance of the cystogram. Injuries are classified as a contusion (mucosal or muscularis injury without extravasation), IBR, EBR, or combined intra. The goals of bladder management are to prevent upper and lower urinary tract complications, including hydronephrosis, renal calculi, bladder calculi, and vesicoureteral reflux. 14 The type of voiding dysfunction, level of injury, and patient's ability to perform self-catheterizations, dressing and transfers. are considered in designing bladder.
Urinary tract is subjected to many varieties of pathologies since birth including congenital anomalies, trauma, inflammatory lesions, and malignancy. These diseases necessitate the replacement of involved organs and tissues. Shortage of organ donation, problems of immunosuppression, and complications associated with the use of nonnative tissues have urged clinicians and scientists to. INTRODUCTION. Urinary bladder catheters are used for urinary drainage or as a means to collect urine for measurement. Many clinical situations are appropriate for the placement of indwelling urethral catheters (), but too frequently they are used without proper indication or continued longer than needed .Daily evaluation of the ongoing need for the indwelling catheters with removal when no.
Neurologic problems. Issues with neurologic functioning may also lead to bladder spasms. Spinal cord injury: Traumatic injury to the spinal cord results in many different complications, including bladder dysfunction. Bladder control is complex and involves coordination between multiple parts of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves leading to the bladder The bladder is the most common site of urinary tract injury, with 0.2% to 2.5% of injuries occurring during hysterectomy. Symmonds noted that 75% of more than 800 fistulas managed over 3 decades occurred after hysterectomy, with 50% of those occurring after simple hysterectomy Posterior urethral valves is a congenital defect in males that results in obstruction of the bladder due to extra tissue that projects into the urethra. This excess tissue blocks urine from flowing freely from the bladder to the outside of the body
