Home > Images > Distended Bladder Following Pelvic Fracture

Dr. Biplab Mishra

A female patient was brought to the Emergency Department (ED) following a motor vehicle injury. Examination revealed a hugely distended lower abdomen with a palpable ‘mass’ and positive pelvic compression test suggesting pelvic fracture. After urethral catheterization and drainage of more than 3000ml of urine, the ‘mass’ disappeared completely. The patient was managed non-operatively.

Is there a specific reason for the amount of urine?

Consider over resuscitation from fluids and urinary retention secondary to local pain as well as preexisting chronic urinary retention.

Is the patient able to move her lower limbs , if any sensorimotor deficit. Consider neurogenic bladder. Best regards
