The authors analysed a group of 65 patients treated for renal injuries in the years 1969?1979. A three-grade scording system was accepted for elassification of injuries. Forty-six patients (70.8%) were treated conservatively, including all pa­tients with grade I injury and 14 with grade II. In 19 cases the treatment was surgical (29.2!%>) with early operations in 11 cases, including 5 nephrecto-mies and 6 sparing operations. Eight patients operated upon at a later trem had nephrectomies.
