HEPATORENAL SYNDROME-25 years later

http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/710591_4  great article summarising HRS..when i was in school and residency, if the patient survived he/she did not have HRS…the article addresses many new therapeutic approaches including transplant..most of short term benefit only..the best treatment of HRS is to prevent it through avoiding  iatrogenic  meddling…excessive diuresis, hypokalemia and nephrotoxic drugs..ALD can be treated with liver transplantation B4 HRS occurs…just my opinion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
