Abstract Injuries to the bladder are caused by blunt and penetrating trauma. The diagnosis ismade by filling the bladder with contrast in a retrograde fashion and imaging the organwhen filled and after drainage. Intraperitoneal ruptures need formal surgical closure,whereas extraperitoneal lesions may be treated, under certain circumstances, with cathe-ter drainage and observation.
