Management of Renal Trauma – Summary

Rodrigo Donalisio da Silva, MD urges urologists to manage blunt and penetrating renal trauma conservatively. He uses the 2017 American Urological Association (AUA) Urotrauma guidelines to outline this conservative approach, specifically when to perform diagnostic imaging with intravenous (IV) contrast enhanced computed tomography (CT), non-invasive management strategies, proper injury classification, and when it is necessary to intervene.
