To examine opioid use following Urological trauma. Increased opioid use is associated with inferior outcomes and risk of dependence, particularly in vulnerable populations. In contrast, multimodal analgesia following trauma allows decreased pain and readmission. Currently there is a paucity of data describing opioid usage following urological trauma. The purpose of this study was to assess utilization of opioids and multimodal pain regimens following urologic trauma.
