BLANCO DIEZ, A. et al. Traumatic urethral disruption in women. A rare entity: Aportation of two cases. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.4, pp.318-323. ISSN 0210-4806.

We present two cases of urethral disruption in women, a very uncommon situation because of the anatomical features. Yet it must be always suspected in all women under a pelvic politraumatism, for eviting important problems. Both cases are traffic politraumatized young girls presenting with pelvic fracture, among others. The surgery performed was combined suprapubic-transvaginal approach, even in one a previous endoscopic realinement was done, who also needed endoscopic complementary treatment: electrofulguration of a fistulous bridge. Outcome of both is fine, achieving good continence. We also make a literature review.

Keywords : Urethral disruption; Women; Pelvic trauma.
