The traumatically injured geriatric patient presents a challenge to the practitioner. Increased morbidity and mortality can result in unique requirements for the treatment of elderly patients. The principles of surgical management of genitourinary injuries remain largely unchanged in the geriatric population. Reconstructive techniques to repair these injuries generally require appropriate evaluation and timing of repair. Fortunately, the treatment of genitourinary injuries in the geriatric population remains largely successful.
