THIERER, Jorge. Cardio-renal syndrome. A review. Rev.Urug.Cardiol. [online]. 2018, vol.33, n.1, pp.81-133. ISSN 0797-0048.

This review analyzes the cardio-renal syndromes type 1 and 2, which develop from cardiac involvement with renal involvement being a consequence of it, highlighting the strong interaction between both organs.

The epidemiology, the pathophysiology, the diagnostic aspects, and the pillars of the treatment of each of them are studied, considering the different clinical trials that provide the evidence for their management.

It highlights the various factors involved in its genesis: hemodynamic, inflammatory, neurohumoral and iatrogenic.

The controversy of its existence as a real entity, as it is currently defined and studied, is addressed, and the need to progress in the knowledge of its diagnostic and therapeutic aspects is raised.

Finally, the importance of developing preventive measures of damage that one organ may cause over the other and of the other involved factors, is highlighted.
