Renal Trauma
Dr. Craig Seidman M.D.

Renal trauma is present in approximately 10% of all abdominal injuries

90% of renal trauma is due to blunt injury.
Major renal trauma is more often associated with penetrating trauma than with blunt trauma (40% vs 15%).

Adopt a high level of suspicion for renal injuries in patients with major blunt abdominal trauma, and those with penetrating flank and back wounds.
