A 62-year-old male was admitted after being struck by a bus. He sustained a severe pelvic fracture, sigmoid colon injury, and both intraperitoneal and extraperitoneal bladder injury. He underwent initial successful bladder repair. However, at 7 days post-operatively he manifested a leak from the repair and urine was evident coming from the pins of his pelvic external fixator. A repeat cystogram showed massive extravasation, which was managed by operative ligation of the lower ureters and placement of percutaneous nephrostomy tubes. He underwent ureteral reconstruction and colostomy reversal at 9 months. He has both bladder and bowel control.
