Urinary Bladder Rupture

Clinical Notes

Puncture wound in left lower abdomen.


CT – Penetrating wound in left suprapubic region, air in the space of Retzius and peritoneal cavity, retroperitoneal edema and right paravesical contrast extravasation. No fracture or sentinel clot.


Bladder injuries are uncommon but most often seen with pelvic fractures and polytrauma and consequently associated with high mortality (44%). Most bladder injuries are extraperitoneal and self-tamponade; intraperitoneal rupture require prompt surgical repair to prevent urine peritonitis.
