Herman S. Bagga, MD, from the University of California San Francisco, and colleagues assessed adult genitourinary injuries related to consumer products using data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System from 2002 to 2010. National estimates were derived from 3,545 observations.The researchers found that an estimated 142,144 adults presented to U.S. emergency departments with genitourinary injuries between 2002 and 2010. Of the injuries, 69 percent occurred in men, and the large majority involved external genitalia. Sporting items, articles of clothing, and furniture were the most common categories of products involved in injuries, accounting for 30.2, 9.4, and 9.2 percent, respectively. Injury prevalence was highest among 18- to 28-year-olds (37.5 percent), which was most often related to sports equipment use. Among older adults over the age of 65, injuries were more commonly sustained during falls, often in the bathroom. The majority (88 percent) of patients were treated in the emergency department without need for admission, while the rate of admission rose with increasing age.
