Cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) is a relatively new concept that refers to the interactions between the cardiovascular and renal systems. Its definition and classification have evolved into 5 subtypes based on pathophysiology, timing and nature of the cardiac/renal dysfunction. The management of CRS will be presented as a multidisciplinary approach focused on the codependent relationship of these two vital systems.
