Submission deadline

Patients with chronic kidney disease are well known to be at a greater risk of cardiovascular disease. Risk factors, such as diabetes and hypertension, are associated with both conditions and a spectrum of disorders in which dysfunction in one of these organs leads to dysfunction in the other is termed cardio-renal syndrome. Considering the increasing prevalence of these conditions and the complex nature of their treatment and management, further research exploring the relationship between these organs is crucial.

This Collection will present manuscripts that increase our understanding of the feedback between the heart and the kidney and that explore treatment and management strategies for associated pathologies.
