The review presents current concepts on cardiorenal syndrome (CRS), including its prevalence, RFs, pathogenesis, and clinical manifestations. The authors provide classification, diagnostic criteria, therapeutic and preventive approaches, and own data on CRS prevalence in elective transcutaneous coronary interventions (TCI). Special attention is paid to acute manifestations of CRS and treatment in intensive care units.
