Abstract

The majority of urological injuries are due to blunt, high-energy trauma, often with associated multi-system injuries, and 80% of patients have pelvic fractures. Urological injuries are potentially fatal in their own right, but can also result in severe long-term disability.

This guideline (BOAST 14) has been prepared in collaboration with the British Orthopaedic Association  and includes advice for managing patients of all ages with potential bladder or urethral trauma.

It is also referenced within the NICE guidance on complex fractures  .
