Medications for Rupture of Bladder

The bladder is a hollow, elastic organ that collects and stores urine. It rests on the pelvic floor at the base of the pelvis and located outside the peritoneal cavity. A rupture of the bladder occurs when there is a break, tear or split in the wall of the bladder. Most ruptured bladders are caused by external trauma from motor vehicle accidents, assault to lower abdomen, injuries penetrating the abdomen, or injuries from falling from a height onto a hard surface. Injuries are more likely to occur if the bladder is fully distended as the bladder wall is stretched and therefore thinner. A small number of bladder ruptures can also occur spontaneously due to other complicating health issues or factors.
