* Vesicoureteral and Intrarenal Reflux. A recent metaanalysis showed that a UTI without reflux carries a 7% risk of scarring, a UTI with low-grade reflux carries a 13% risk, and a UTI with high-grade reflux carries a 53% risk.
* Vesicoureteral and Intrarenal Reflux -- The presence of vesicoureteral reflux (the flow of urine from the bladder backwards into the ureters) or intrarenal reflux (urine flowing backwards in the kidney) significantly increases the risk of scarring.
