Postrenal acute renal failure is increased by the presence of an enlarged prostate, tumors around your bladder and kidneys, or kidney or bladder stones. Other conditions that obstruct your bladder or ureters may also increase your risk.

What is prerenal acute renal failure?

Why is eating fresh foods important if I need to reduce my salt intake?
If you need to reduce your salt intake, buy fresh foods as often as possible. Typically, fresh fruits, vegetables and meats are low in sodium and healthier for your heart. Also, cooking from scratch can help you reduce your sodium intake while preventing you from eating prepared foods and frozen dinners. Although premade meals are an easier option if you have a busy schedule, the high salt content can make your blood pressure higher and produce more strain on your heart over the years.
How is a ureteral stent removed?
Intermountain Healthcare answeredUreteral stents usually stay in for a few weeks, depending on the procedure you had. With some operations, the stent will stay in place for 6 weeks afterward. Your surgeon will give you the details. To remove most stents, a soft, flexible scope (about the size of a urine catheter) is sent up the urethra to the bladder. A grasper on the scope catches the stent and pulls it out through the urethra. The urologist will put numbing jelly inside the urethra before inserting the scope. You may feel some burning as the scope moves past certain parts of the urethra, but the procedure lasts just a few minutes. Pulling the stent feels a bit like pulling out a bladder catheter. Sometimes a short string is attached to the stent and hangs out of the urethra. In these cases, the stent is removed by pulling the string.
