post agudo


Explanation:
Por lo general los prefijos de origen latino se conservan, como en:
postmortem= post mortem
postoperative= postoperatorio, etc.
De ahí, me inclino a dejar post igual y a traducir acute.

pos-agudo/post-agudo


Explanation:
I would need the rest of the sentence/text in order to give an accurate answer when it comes to medical references...

post=pos or post as in "after" but this particular word has many definitions even in the medical field.

acute="agudo" or "acentuar" which have two different meanings. Chronic is another synonym for acute (Med).

post-
prefix.
1. after in time or sequence; following; subsequent: postgraduate.
2. behind; posterior to: postorbital.
[from Latin, from post after, behind
