Answer

All suspected cases of cauda equina syndrome, spinal cord compression, or paraspinal abscess warrant admission and neurology and neurosurgery consultation. [24] The following conditions warrant a urology consultation, although for ED patients, this can be obtained in the outpatient setting [24] :

  • Suspected bladder neoplasm, unexplained hematuria, and recent voiding symptoms

  • History of prior radical pelvic surgery or pelvic radiation

  • Prior pelvic incontinence surgery

  • Gross pelvic prolapse
