Introduction </p> <ul><li>Renal dysfunction is a common and serious problem in patients with advanced liver disease. In particular, alterations in renal physiology in acute liver failure or cirrhosis with ascites can predispose patients to a specific functional form of renal failure known as hepatorenal syndrome </li></ul> <ul><li>The accurate assessment of the kidney function and injury is currently affected by the reliance on the measured concentration of serum creatinine,which is significantly affected by the degree of cirrhosis, hyperbilirubinemia and the nutritional state of the patient. </li></ul> <p>4. Epidemiology </p> <ul><li>The predictive factors for the development of HRS include: </li></ul> <ul><li>- a low serum sodium </li></ul> <ul><li>- high plasma rennin </li></ul> <ul><li>- absence of hepatomegaly </li></ul> <p>5. Co-existing liver and kidney disease </p> <ul><li> Chronic liver disease and primary liver cancer </li></ul> <ul><li> Obesity and metabolic syndrome are also strongly associated with the development of hypertension and diabetes </li></ul> <ul><li> Hepatitis C has long been associated with several glomerulopathies </li></ul> <ul><li>Viral RNA, proteins and particles have been isolated from kidney biopsy specimen, hepatitis C infection has been reported to be associated with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. Hepatitis C also has been associated with an increased risk of albuminuria, progression of diabetic nephropathy and progression of kidney disease. </li></ul> <p>6. </p> <ul><li> Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is associated with a number of renal disease, including polyarteritis nodosa, membranous and membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis </li></ul> <ul><li> Autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney isassociated with polycystic liver disease in up to75-90% of cases</li></ul> <ul><li> Familial amyloidosis is an autosomal dominant disease </li></ul> <p>7. Renal diseases associated with major types of liver disease Membranous glomerulonephritis (GN), membranoproliferative GN, IgA nephropathy, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis Hepatitis B Membranoproliferative GN, membranous GN, cryoglobulinemia, fibrillary GN, IgA nephropathy, tubulointerstitial nephritis Hepatitis C IgA nephropathy Alcoholic liver disease Prerenal azotemia/acute tubular necrosis from hypovolemia, decreased cardiac output, sepsis; acute tubular necrosis Obstructive jaundice Membranous GN, antineutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibody-positive vasculitis, antiglomerular basement membrane disease, renal tubular acidosis, tubulointerstitial nephritis Primary biliary cirrhosis Membranous GN, membranoproliferative GN, antineutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibody-positive vasculitis Primary sclerosing cholangitis Renal tubular acidosis (Type 1) secondary to copper deposition Wilsons disease Membranoproliferative GN, antiglomerular basement membrane disease Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency 8. Systemic diseases involving both liver and kidney Acetaminophen, ASA Drug toxicity Sarcoidosis Granulomatous diseases Malaria Infectious diseases Amyloidosis Infiltrative diseases Lupus Inflammatory Non alcoholic fatty liver disease Pre-eclapmsia/HELLP Hmeloysis, elevated liver enzymes, low platelets Autosomal dominant Polycystic kidney/liver disease Sickle cell disease Congestive heart failure, sepsis, hypovolemia Shock states 9. Serum creatinine concentration for the assessment of kidney function in chronic liver disease </p> <ul><li>Kidney function is evaluated by assessing the GFR which can be determined by measuring the volume of plasma that can be cleared of a given substance over a timed unit of time </li></ul> <ul><li>GFR has relied on the measurement of the concentration ofserum creatinine , which is associated with many problems: </li></ul> <ul><li>- specific, but not sensitive </li></ul> <ul><li>- measurement is affected by gender, age, ethnicity,nutritional state, protein intake and importantly, liver disease</li></ul> <ul><li>In chronic liver disease, the reduction in serum creatinine is due to a 50% decrease in hepatic production of creatinine and increase in the volume distribution </li></ul> <p>10. Acute Kidney Injury Network Criteria for staging Acute Kidney Injury </p> <ul><li>In 2005, the Acute Kidney Injury Network (AKIN) developed theRIFLE (Risk, Injury, Failure, Loss, End stage renal disease)criteria </li></ul> <p>11. Acute kidney injury network(AKIN)acute kidney injurystaging criteria 12.

Definition of HRS </p> <ul><li>HRS is defined as the development of renal failure in patients with advanced liver failure (acute or chronic) in the absence of any identifiable causes of renal pathology </li></ul> <ul><li>In 1996, the International Ascites Club subdividedHRS into 2 types; </li></ul> <p>20. Hepatorenal syndrome </p> <ul><li>Type I </li></ul> <ul><li> characterized by a rapid decline in renal function </li></ul> <ul><li> defined as a doubling of serum creatinine to a level &gt; 2.5 mg/dL or a halving of the creatinine clearance to &lt; 20 mL/min within 2 weeks </li></ul> <ul><li> clinical presentation is that of acute renal failure</li></ul> <ul><li>Type II</li></ul> <ul><li> renal function deteriorates more slowly</li></ul> <ul><li> serum creatinine increases to &gt; 1.5 mg/dL or a creatinine clearance of &lt; 40 mL/min.</li></ul> <ul><li>The clinical presentation is that of stable renal failure in a patient with refractory ascites </li></ul> <p>21. Diagnosis of HRS </p> <ul><li>Some patients withprimary liver diseaseare at higher risk for developing certain forms of kidney disease while somesystemic processescan affect both liver and kidney </li></ul> <ul><li>Major criteriashould be fulfilled to confirm diagnosis </li></ul> <p>22.
