Abstract

We describe a case of unilateral entrapment of the ureter in the sacroiliac joint of a patient who sustained blunt abdominal trauma resulting in fractures of the pubic rami and sacroiliac joint and multiple bladder perforations. The entrapment was discovered intraoperatively and released by external traction and reduction of the pelvic fractures. No ureteric damage was observed, and reimplantation was not necessary. The importance of evaluating the upper tracts for potential injury in patients with fractures of the bony pelvis and concomitant bladder rupture is emphasized.
