We reviewed 100 consecutive cases of pelvic fractures at our hospital to establish the relationship between bone injuries and urological lesions. There were 11 major urological injuries found: 6 patients had bladder laceration, 4 had rupture of the membranous urethra and 1 had a ureteral injury. Emphasis is placed on the physiopathology of the urological injuries.
