Purpose of review: The subject of genitourinary trauma was recently reviewed as an American Urologic Association guideline as well as recently updated as a European Association of Urology guideline. These guidelines, while complete and authoritative, deserve review, amplification and clarification. Also, notably absent from the guidelines is a section on the management of renovascular injuries, which will be reviewed here.
Recent findings: In the 2014, the American Urologic Association and updated European Association of Urology guidelines were published with highlighted features or changes described here.
Summary: We report the updated features of the guidelines as well as sections of update from our own experiences in which the guidelines remain vague or are absent.
