Cardiorenal syndrome: A literature review

By Narayan Pokhrel, Najindra Maharjan, Bismita Dhakal and Rohit R Arora

Abstract

The incidence of cardiorenal syndrome is increasing; however, its pathophysiology and effective management are still not well understood. For many years, diuretics have been the mainstay of treatment for cardiorenal syndrome, although a significant proportion of patients develop resistance to diuretics and even deteriorate while on diuretics. Trials on different ways to counteract diuretic resistance and newer treatment modalities, such as nesiritide, arginine vasopressin receptor antagonists, adenosine receptor antagonists and ultrafiltration, have shown promising results
