PMID:  573339     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The clinical course of 4 female patients with complete traumatic rupture of the urethra was evaluated in an effort to propose guide lines for the investigation and initial management of this unusual injury. Treatment modalities are determined by the level of urethral injury and the subsequent effect on continence. We recommend a retropubic approach for bladder neck injuries, a transvaginal approach for proximal urethral ruptures with reanastomosis over a stenting catheter and acceptance of a hypospadiac neomeatus for distal urethral ruptures.
