Genitourinary injuries are infrequent consequences of trauma, but may carry significant morbidity and mortality if not treated and recognized promptly. Genitourinary injuries are seen about 1–5% of all traumas, with 80% of injuries related to the kidney. The majority of genitourinary injuries are related to blunt trauma. While controversies exist on the management of various genitourinary trauma using nonoperative management, we hope to guide the surgeon on the operative management of genitourinary trauma when encountered.
