Abstract

Female urethral injuries associated with Pelvic fracture are not as uncommon as it was previously thought. Primary endoscopic realignment of proximal urethra and catheterisation on guide-wire is very good procedure in early presentation. Every female patient with urethral injury due to pelvic fracture should be referred for primary repair to decrease the avoidable morbidity of these patients.
