Hepatorenal syndrome(HRS) is a complication of cirrhosis and end-stage liver disease that develops in 8% to 12% of adults each year. HRS-acute kidney injury (HRS-AKI) can be distinguished from other forms of AKI by the absence of signs of intrinsic kidney disease. Short-term therapeutic goals are to reverse AKI and prolong survival. However, even with guideline-based treatment, the mortality rate for patients hospitalized with HRS-AKI is > 40%, and long-term survival is very poor without liver transplantation. Early recognition and treatment of HRS-AKI are essential for optimizing both short-term and long-term outcomes for patients with end-stage liver disease.  Join our panel of top experts for this MedscapeLIVE! interactive CME-certified symposium focused on the effective management of patients with HRS-AKI, including the importance of early detection of HRS-AKI, and treatment strategies for HRS-AKI in liver transplant patients.

This activity is intended for transplant surgeons, nephrologists, and gastroenterologists, and other healthcare practitioners (HCPs) who work with patients with end-stage liver disease (ESLD).


The goal of this activity is that learners will be better able to recognize and manage HRS-AKI in the pre-liver transplant stage.


Upon completion of this activity, participants will: Have increased knowledge regarding the[LIST] [ITEM]Considerations for dialysis in patients with HRS-AKI[ITEM]Patient specific considerations for vasoconstrictor therapy[/LIST] Have greater competence related to[LIST][ITEM]Recognizing HRS-AKI early in the disease course[ITEM]Individualizing fluid management for patients with HRS-AKI[/LIST]
