Question 9#

In urethral trauma secondary to pelvic fracture, which of the following procedures is not used in the acute management?

a. Retrograde urethrogram
b. Antegrade urethrogram
c. Flexible urethroscopy
d. Ultrasound guided supra-pubic insertion of catheter
e. Gentle passage of a 14 F latex catheter

Correct Answer is B


Answer B

Antegrade urethrogram is useful in the planning of delayed reconstruction but is difficult and not helpful in the acute phase of management. Flexible urethroscopy can be used to assess the injury and catheterise the bladder per urethra.
