Possible renal trauma indicatives in the anamnesis and physical exam are falls, high-energy car accidents, and direct trauma to the flanks. An investigation with evaluation of the patient’s hemodynamic status, microscopic and macroscopic urine analysis, and, selectively, imagining exams should be performed. Conservative treatment is the choice for most of the patients. If intervention is indicated, nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy, renorrhaphy, urethral catheterization, and endovascular embolization are treatment options.
