Cardiorenal Syndromes

Cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) is the heart and kidney disorders such as acute or long-term dysfunction in one organ may induce acute or long-term dysfunction of the other. CRS is characterized by the triad concomitant decrease in renal function, heart failure resistant to therapy with congestion (i.e., diuretic resistance), and worsening of renal function during treatment of heart failure. Acute increase in the level of serum creatinine accompanies 21% -45% of hospitalizations for decompensated heart failure. 50% of patients with CHF decreased renal function.

  • Acute decompensated heart failure -> Acute kidney injury
  • Chronic heart failure -> Chronic kidney disease
  • Acute kidney injury -> Acute heart failure
  • Chronic kidney disease -> Chronic heart failure
  • Codevelopment of heart failure and chronic kidney disease
