Torsion of the urinary bladder after pelvic trauma and surgical fixation. Academic Article uri icon


  • Urinary bladder torsion in a dog was successfully treated with reduction of the torsion and cystopexy. Urinary bladder torsion is a rare occurrence in dogs and has only been reported once previously. In the previous report, the bladder torsion was iatrogenic. This brief communication describes a case of bladder torsion and subtotal necrosis following reduction and stabilisation of pelvic fractures sustained during a road traffic accident. Proposed aetiology, diagnosis, treatment and postoperative management are discussed.
