By-products of nitrogen metabolism are elevated in high concentration in urine compared to blood, and serve as a surrogate marker for the identification of urine leakage into a body compartment. This may occur due to trauma, abdominal or pelvic surgery, and bladder perforation. Concentrations of creatinine or urea nitrogen that exceed the concentration found in a concurrent sample of blood are suggestive of the presence of urine.
