- There is an overlap between cardiovascular and kidney disease: hemodynamic interactions of heart and kidney failure, the impact on atherosclerotic disease across both organs, and neurohormonal activation are some of several overlap examples.
- The term cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) includes a spectrum of disorders involving both the heart and kidneys where acute or chronic dysfunction in one organ may induce acute or chronic dysfunction in the other organ.
