Postrenal azotemia is a potentially life-threatening consequence of urinary obstruction Its most serious consequences include fluid volume deficits, hyperkalemia, and metabolic acidosis. Immediate therapy should be directed at restoring urine flow, correcting extracellular fluid volume deficits, minimizing the cardiac toxicity of hyperkalemia, and ameliorating the cardiovascular effects of metabolic acidosis. Most patients respond quickly and completely to such therapeutic intervention.
