Özet

Background: Microscopic hematuria is an extremely important sign in blunt abdominal trauma (BAT) patients. Controversies still exist in the literature on whether microscopic hematuria is a sign of intra-abdominal extrarenal organ injury and is an indication for radiographic assessment of BAT patients. In this study, a new BAT rat model was developed, and we tried to determine the relationships between microscopic hematuria and extrarenal intra-abdominal organ injury.
