Urological Trauma Doc. MUDr. Robert Grill PhDr. Urologická klinika 3. LF UK a FNKV
Renal trauma-aetiology and pathogenesis Penetrating trauma ( stab wounds, gunshots injuries) Blunt trauma ( 80-85% of all kidney´s traumas) - direct blunt impact - deceleration injuries Iatrogenic (parenchymal injury during surgery, ESWL, percutan extraction of concrement ) ab Mechanisms of renal injury a) direct blunt impact b) deceleration
Renal injury classification AAST renal injury grading scale Grade 1 - Contusion or non-expanding subcapsular haematoma, no laceration Grade 2 - Non-expanding peri-renal haematoma, Cortical laceration < 1 cm deep without extravasation Grade 3 - Cortical laceration > 1 cm without urinary extravasation Grade 4 - Laceration through corticomedullary junction into collecting system or segmental renal artery or vein injury with contained haematoma, or partial vessel laceration, or vessel thrombosis Grade 5 - shattered kidney or renal pedicle or avulsion.
Renal injury- symptomatology Haematuria ( at 80-90% renal trauma)- no correlation between level of haematuria and degree of injury / 1/3 of wounded does not suffer by haematuria / Abdominal tenderness extended during palpation Abdominal abrasions Ribs fracture Nausea, vomiting, blockage of the intestine, acute abdomen signs Symptoms of hypovolemic shock ( systolic pressure 90/min, decreased or no urine output, pale skin color, cool, clammy skin …..).
Diagnosis of renal injuries Haemodynamic stability of patient is the fundamental criterion History of accident - background of injury (rapid deceleration, direct blow to the flank, the size of the weapon in stabbings…) Patient´s medical history – focusing on pre-existing kidney dysfunctions and diseases ( hydronephrosis, nephrolithiasis, kidney cysts, kidney tumors, kidney surgeries ) Physical assessment - haematuria, flank abrassions, flank palpable pain, palpable mass in the kidney area, abdominal distension, acute abdomen signs, fractured ribs Laboratory evaluation - urinalysis, regular haematocrit controlling, creatinine baseline
Diagnosis of renal injuries Imaging – criteria for radiographic assessment - gross or microscopic haematuria and shock, associated major injuries Ultrasonography - provides a quick, non-invasive, low-cost means of detecting peritoneal fluid collections, can detect degree of renal injury, eliminate solitary kidney, dopplers assessment of functional state of kidney, indication for other radiological examination Standard IVP - offers basic information about kidney functionality, nowadays supplied by contrast CT examination. Unstable patients selected for immediate operative intervention /,,one-shot“ IVP/ are exception for using Standard IVP. Computed tomography – CT is a standard method used on stable patients. It is more sensitive and specific than IVP, USG and angiography. CT detects the location of injuries, evaluates details and functionality of kindneys, defines pre-existing abnormalities and associated traumas. Magnetic resonance imaging - MRI has no advantage in compare with CT, it requires a longer imaging time, increases the cost, and limits access to patients when they are in the magnet during the examination. MRI is therefore useful in renal trauma if patient suffers with iodine allergy or renal insuficience. Angiography - has been largely replaced by CT as the use of angiography is less specific, more time-consuming and more invasive. Angiography may be preferable when planning selective embolisation for the management of persistent or delayed haemorrhage from branching renal vessels.
Treatment and prognosis in renal injuries Non-operative therapy – choice for the majority stable patients with renal injuries grade 1-4 (bed-rest, hydration, antibiotics, continuous imaging examinations, hemostyptic therapy, monitoring of vital signs ). Surgical management Indications – haemodynamic instability - exploration for associated injuries - expanding or pulsatile peri-renal haematoma identified during laparotomy - grade 5 injury - incidental finding of pre-existing renal pathology requiring surgical therapy
Early and delayed complications at renal trauma Early complications - occur within the first month after injury and can be bleeding, infection, peri-nephric abscess, sepsis, urinary fistula, hypertension, urinary extravasation, and urinoma. Delayed complications - include bleeding, hydronephrosis, calculus formation, chronic pyelonephritis, hypertension ( less than 5% patients ), arteriovenous fistulae, hydronephrosis and pseudoaneurysms.
Ureteral trauma-aetiology and pathogenesis Very rare and accounts for only 1% of all urinary tract trauma. Blunt trauma 18% Penetrating trauma 7% Iatrogenic 75% - gynecological 73% ( hysterectomy, ovarectomy, gynecologic laparoskopy surgery…) - surgical 14% ( colorectal surgery, abdominal vascular surgery….) - urological 14% ( ureteroscopy, insertion of ureteral catheter )
AAST ureteral injuries classification Grade 1: Haematoma only Grade 2: Laceration < 50% of circumference Grade 3: Laceration > 50% of circumference Grade 4: Complete tear < 2 cm of devascularisation Grade 5: Complete tear > 2 cm of devascularisation
Ureteral trauma symptoms Varies according to aetiology and difficulty of injury : Abdominal and flank pain Haematuria in different levels Faebrilia Decreased urine output Nausea, vomiting Urosepsis Acute abdomen signs
Ureteral trauma-IVP Urinary extravasation from the middle third of the left ureter /after ureteroscopy/
Therapy of ureteral trauma Treatment depends on the extent and the location of uretal trauma : Grade 1 and 2 can be managed non-surgical with ureteral stenting or nephrostomy. Grade 3 to 5 need a reconstructive repair. The type of reconstructive repair procedure depends on the nature and the site of the injury. The options for repair of ureteral injuries - Uretero-ureterostomy - Ureterocalycostomy - Transuretero-ureterostomy - Boari flap and reimplantation - Ureterocystostomy - Psoas hitch - Ileal interposition
Complications at ureteral trauma Urinoma Periureteral abscess Fistula Strictura
Bladder trauma - aetiology and pathogenesis 2% of all abdominal injuries, often associated with pelvic fracture Blunt trauma - caused by direct impacts at the pelvic area or lower abdominal at patients with the full bladder, % of patiens suffer pelvic fractures at the same time Penetrating trauma- gunshots, stub wounds Iatrogenic trauma-1/2 of all bladder traumas (transuretral operation of prostatis, bladder, gynaecological operations, hernioplasty)
Bladder trauma symptoms Lower abdominal pain Gross haematuria most common signs Nausea, vomiting Paralytic ileus Peritonitis Inability to void Bruises over the suprapubic region Haemoragic shock
Diagnosis of bladder traumas Physical assessment – lower abdominal pain, crepitations and instability of pelvic ring, abrassions….. Laboratory examination – urianalysis and blood examination Imaging - Retrograde ureterocystography : standardly used method, sensitivity of 100%, it is neccessary to fill the bladder with a minimum of 350 ml of dilute contrast material - CT cystography : this procedure should be performed using retrograde filling of the bladder with dilute contrast material - IVP : is inadequate for evaluation of the bladder trauma ( dilution of the contrast material within the bladder, too low resting intravesical pressure to demonstrate a small tear )
Bladder trauma- Retrograde cystography Extraperitoneal bladder wall laceration Intra and extraperitoneal bladder wall laceration
Therapy of bladder traumas Extraperitoneal bladder ruptures - managed by catheter drainage alone, ATB treatment Indications for surgical repair : - intraperitoneal bladder ruptures - bladder neck injuries - the presence of bone fragments in the bladder wall - entrapment of the bladder wall by bone fragments - associated injuries that require surgical intervention, are managed by interdisciplinary cooperation
Urethral trauma Male urethral injury The posterior urethra - prostatic and the membranous urethra. The anterior urethra - bulbar and penile urethra.
Urethral trauma – aetiology and pathogenesis 1. Posterior urethral injuries Mostly the result of pelvic fractures / height falls, traffic accidents / 2. Anterior urethral injuries Blunt trauma Penetrating injuries Iatrogenic injuries Automutilation
Classification of urethral injuries Classification of blunt anterior and posterior urethral injury Grade 1 : Stretch injury. Elongation of the urethra without extravasation on urethrography Grade 2 : Contusion. Blood at the urethral meatus, no extravasation on urethrography Grade 3 : Partial disruption of anterior or posterior urethra. Extravasation of contrast at injury site with contrast visualised in the proximal urethra or bladder Grade 4 : Complete disruption of anterior urethra. Extravasation of contrast at injury site without visualisation of proximal urethral or bladder Grade 5 : Complete disruption of posterior urethra. Extravasation of contrast at injury site without visualisation of bladder Grade 6 : Complete or partial disruption of posterior urethra with associated tear of the bladder neck or vagina
Symptoms of urethral trauma Lower abdominal pain Urethrorrhagia Inability to void Perineal haematoma
Urethral trauma diagnosis Physical assessment – lower abdomen pain,urethrorrhagia, crepitations and instability of pelvic ring, ecchymosis, high-riding prostate, perineal haematoma Laboratory examination – urinalysis and blood testing Imaging - retrograde urethrography – gold standard for evaluating urethral injury - CT and MRI : used in defining distorted pelvic anatomy after severe injury and assessing associated injuries of other organs - USG : useful in determining the position of pelvic haematomas, or the exact location of the bladder when a suprapubic catheter is indicated.
Urethral trauma- retrograde urethrography Normal retrograde urethrographyDisruption of posterior urethra
Therapy of urethral traumas I. Anterior urethral injuries therapy Grade 1 – no treatment is neccessary Grade 2 and 3 - urethral catheterisation or suprapubic cystostomy More complicated injuries -suprapubic derivation, delayed optic uretrotomy, urethral dilatation, longer defects of the anterior urethra should be repaired by an end-to-end anastomosis, defects over 1cm by flap urethroplasty Open injuries - primary urethral suturing - defects of more than 1 cm in length a two-stage urethral repair II. Posterior urethral injuries therapy Partial urethral rupture - suprapubic or urethral catheter. Complete urethral rupture - primary endoscopic realignment, - immediate open urethroplasty, - delayed primary urethroplasty, - delayed formal urethroplasty, - delayed endoscopic incision
Female urethral injuries Only the posterior urethra exists in the female Rare injuries due to length and limited connection to pubic bone Most often during the delivery, iatrogenic trauma, pelvic fracture, fracture of ventral part of pelvic ring Symptoms are similar to male urethral trauma In diagnostic,urethroscopy is prefered to technically hard performed urethrography Most female urethral disruptions can be sutured primarily either transvaginally or transvesically
Complications at urethral trauma Urinary incontinence Erectile dysfunction Urethral stricture Fistulae or urethral pseudodiverticula
Penile trauma Aetiology Blunt trauma – penile fracture, ischemic gangrene, thermal and chemical injuries Penetrating trauma – gunshots wounds, stab, cuts Sympthoms Pain, haematoma, inability to void, bleeding Diagnosis Physical assessment /palpable tenderness, haematoma, haematuria / USG, Retrograde urethrography / to eliminate an injury of urethra/ Therapy In penile fracture- surgical intervention Reimplantation in case of total penile amputation In associated injury of urethra-epicystostomia, urethral catheterisation
Prostate and seminal vesicles trauma Aetiology Injury of the prostate and posterior urethra associated with pelvic trauma Iatrogenic- prostate biopsy Symptoms rectorrhagia Perineal pain Urethrorrhagi a, hematuri a Fever, septic shock Diagnosis Physical assessment -digital rectal examination/pain, oedema, fluctuation / USG, NMR true Pelvis Therapy ATB, hemostyptic drugs, rectum tamponade, incision and drainage of prostatic abscess
Scrotal trauma Aetiology Blunt trauma Penetrating trauma / rare injuries / Iatrogenic trauma Symptomatology Depends on the extent of the injury / pain, bleeding, swollen / Diagnostic Physical assessment –inspection, palpation USG, CT, NMR Therapy Depends on the extent of the injury / from conservative management to reconstruction of scrotum / Complications Post-traumatic testicular atrophy Testicular cancer
Adrenal trauma-aetiology Vary in infants and adults Blunt trauma Penetrating trauma Iatrogenic trauma Infants post-delivery trauma
Adrenal trauma - symptoms Haemoragic shock Palpable resistance Acute adrenal insufficiency /tachypnoe, fever, petechiae and purpura, metabolic collapse, abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhoea, spasm and cyanosis/ most common in infants with bilateral adrenal injury
Adrenal trauma-therapy Conservative management with blood loss compensation, corticoid substitute, correction of metabolic interference Surgical intervention in cases unable to treat non-operative – exploration, nephroadrenalectomy
