Department of Urology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15213-3232, USA.The Canadian Journal of Urology (Impact Factor: 0.98). 07/2008; 15(3):4115-7.
The kidney is the most commonly injured urologic organ, with most injuries occurring unilaterally. We report a rare case of synchronous bilateral renal hematomas in an 87 year old restrained driver involved in a motor vehicle accident and briefly review the management of renal trauma, including the indications for operative intervention. This case demonstrates that in select cases bilateral renal injuries can be managed conservatively.
