1. Cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) describes the primary dysfunction in either the kidney or heart that initiates the combined impairments of both organs. The heart and the kidney exert reciprocal control of the respective function to maintain constant blood volume and organ perfusion under continuously changing conditions. 2. The pathophysiology of CRS is not fully understood, but appears to be caused by a complex combination of hemodynamic, neurohormonal, immunological and biochemical feedback pathways. Amongst these pathways, the contributory role of uraemic toxins that accumulate in CRS has been under-explored. One such toxin, indoxyl sulfate, has been found to have direct adverse effects on relevant cardiac cells. 3. Early diagnosis by assessing cardiac and renal injury biomarkers may be critical for timely therapeutic intervention. Such therapies are directed at attenuation of neurohormonal activation, control of elevated blood pressure, correction of anaemia and relief of hypervolaemia. Reduction of non-dialyzable uraemic toxins is a further potentially beneficial therapeutic strategy.
