Abstract A case of grade IV renal trauma is reported and the literature reviewed. A 29-year-old man was admitted in an emergency setting for a grade IV renal and splenic trauma as a result of a motorcycle accident. Since the patient was haemodynamically stable and the retroperitoneal haematoma was neither expanding nor pulsating, a conservative approach was adopted and the renal trauma was managed with interventional radiology. The case shows that major renal traumas can be usefully managed by non-operative treatment, necessarily consisting in a mutidisciplinary approach.

Abstract

Abstract A case of grade IV renal trauma is reported and the literature reviewed. A 29-year-old man was admitted in an emergency setting for a grade IV renal and splenic trauma as a result of a motorcycle accident. Since the patient was haemodynamically stable and the retroperitoneal haematoma was neither expanding nor pulsating, a conservative approach was adopted and the renal trauma was managed with interventional radiology. The case shows that major renal traumas can be usefully managed by non-operative treatment, necessarily consisting in a mutidisciplinary approach.
