Cardiorenal syndromes: Pathogenetic, clinicodiagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic aspects
Current information on cardiorenal and renocardial relations with clinicopathophysiological disorders in which primary impairment of the heart or kidneys leads to secondary functional and morphological abnormality in the other organ is analysed. Acute decompensation of cardiac failure is wide spread pathology which can be complicated by both acute and chronic lesion of the kidneys. Acute renal failure in cardiogenic shock in patients with ST elevation acute myocardial infarction deteriorates prognosis and raises lethality. Administration of radiopharmaceutical in patients with myocardial infarction and coronary heart disease with stents may induce nephropathy. Synergic affection of the heart and kidneys is observed in diabetes mellitus, systemic lupus erythematosus, amyloidosis, infectious endocarditis and some other diseases.
