Information used was patients’ gender, mechanism of trauma, grading of kidney trauma, associated injury, management, shock, and outcome after treatment. The data obtained was subsequently recapitulated and processed using a spreadsheet. Results: A total 20489 trauma cases admission in Hasan Sadikin Hospital, 477 cases (2.33%) were urogenital trauma, and 130 of which are cases of kidney trauma (0.63%).
