Cardiorenal syndrome: a Bright idea with earlier roots

Xingping Dai, Bing Zhou, Stanley Fan, Han B Xiao

There are many major challenges in managing cardiorenal syndrome, its prevalence is high (in 30% of hospitalised patients with heart failure),5 it is associated with a wide range of comorbidities, its diagnostic criteria remain arbitrary, the fine balance between potential damage and therapeutic effect with the current medical treatment is hard to strike, its prognosis remains poor and its prevention has been hardly explored by the medical profession. Prevention is better than cure Prevention of cardiorenal syndrome, as in other medical conditions, would be much more fruitful than any treatment once occurred. The current prevention of cardior

For instance, acute kidney i

Cardiorenal syndrome: one disease – two paths?

Abstract

Introduction That renal and cardiac disease appear inseparable from an epidemiological perspective is unsurprising, since they share many risk factors, notably hypertension, diabetes and inflammation. To date, however, our focus on the disparate specialities of ‘cardiology’ and ‘nephrology’ has reinforced a perception of each system as separate. The Cardiorenal Forum (CRF) was established to challenge this perspective. The most recent meeting, last autumn, ‘Optimising care at the cardiorenal interface’ was organised by the Royal College of Physicians, the British Cardiovascular Society and the Renal Association, in association wit
