Abrupt and primary worsening of kidney function due, for example, to renal ischemia or glomerulonephritis causing acute cardiac dysfunction, which may be manifested as HF Type IV Primary CKD contributes to cardiac dysfunction, which may be manifested as coronary disease, HF, or arrhythmia Type V secondary Acute or chronic systemic disorders e. However, chronic HF and CKD commonly coexist, and it is difficult to determine which of the two disease processes is primary Cardiac injury may be directly induced by inflammatory mediators, oxidative stress, and upregulation of neuroendocrine systems early after AKI 16 , AKI may be associated with volume overload, retention of uremic solutes, pulmonary edema, and cardiac arrhythmias. Acidosis from uremia produces pulmonary vasoconstriction, which can significantly contribute to right-sided HF

Adv Chronic Kidney Dis. Cardiorenal Syndrome: An Overview. Parodi - Delfino Hospital, Colleferro, Italy. Electronic address: dilulloluca69 gmail. It is well established that a large number of patients with acute decompensated heart failure present with various degrees of heart and kidney dysfunction usually primary disease of heart or kidney often involve dysfunction or injury to the other.
The term cardiorenal syndrome increasingly had been used without a consistent or well-accepted definition. To include the vast array of interrelated derangements and to stress the bidirectional nature of heart-kidney interactions, a new classification of the cardiorenal syndrome with 5 subtypes that reflect the pathophysiology, the time frame, and the nature of concomitant cardiac and renal dysfunction was proposed.
Cardiorenal syndrome can generally be defined as a pathophysiological disorder of the heart and kidneys, in which acute or chronic dysfunction of one organ may induce acute or chronic dysfunction to the other. Although cardiorenal syndrome was usually referred to as acute kidney dysfunction following acute cardiac disease, it is now clearly established that impaired kidney function can have an adverse impact on cardiac function.

Furthermore, the feasibility of the distinction between CRS type 2 and 4 in terms of diagnosis can be questioned. Braam et al. Therefore, regardless of which organ fails first, the same neurohormonal systems are activated causing accelerated cardiovascular disease, and progression of damage and failure of both organs. These systems are broken down into two broad categories of "hemodynamic factors" and non-hemodynamic factors or "cardiorenal connectors". It is known that many of the medications used to treat HF may worsen kidney function. In addition, many trials on HF excluded patients with advanced kidney dysfunction. Therefore, our understanding of CRS management is still limited to this date.
