St. Louis Blues winger Scottie Upshall is out for the season with a lacerated kidney. A lacerated kidney can be a potentially serious injury, depending on the severity of damage. The potential complications range from minor trauma, infection, major laceration causing bleeding into the abdomen, and possible kidney failure. This matter needs to be taken seriously and as a result he will likely undergo serial CT scans of his abdomen to closely monitor. Additionally, he will likely undergo serial blood and kidney testing. It’s plausible he suffered the injury due to a fractured rib, which in turn lacerated the kidney.
