Abdominal and Genitourinary Emergencies

by Sharon Bord, MD

The diversity of intra-abdominal/pelvic pathology is greater than of any other organ system. Common causes include abdominal surgery, penetrating abdominal trauma, appendicitis, pancreatitis, diverticulitis, perforated viscus, biliary disease, and primary peritonitis. It is important not to overlook obstetric/gynecologic causes or genitourinary involvement as well.

These diseases can become life-threatening if not treated properly, or they may lead to chronic complications if treatment is delayed. It is important to develop a systematic approach to identify the cause of abdominal and/or genitourinary trauma and to develop a standardized approach to management.

Thorough, practical and rich with practicalities
By Henry L. on 08. April 2023 for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA): Management

Thorough, objective and yet rich with practical details. I feel Dr. Bord has led us through the pathway of how to correctly approach this diagnosis and its management. It is filled with little tidbits and potential traps that she interspersed there for us. A great job!

Dr. Sharon is a great lecturer.
By Amirhossein J. on 19. November 2022 for Acute Mesenteric Ischemia

What a great lecturer. Very confident and clear to the point.

Well presented course
By Aman G. on 27. February 2022 for Abdominal and Genitourinary Emergencies

I liked the course for its short and crisp presentation of the videos and content though in some cases I felt like maybe a bit more elaboration on certain points was warranted. But, I'm sure that would have been covered in the Internal medicine course. Altogether, I enjoyed the course and I'm sure it will help me in my time in the ED. Thank you Dr. Sharon Bord and Lecturio team for putting this together Aman
