Paired Conversations: The Management of Patients With Hepatorenal Syndrome-Acute Kidney Injury: An International Perspective

To participate in this activity, please:

Hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) represents an acute complication of decompensated cirrhosis and is a subtype of acute kidney injury (AKI), with high associated mortality. This activity consists of 6 paired conversations with experts from Europe and the United States in the fields of hepatology, critical care, nephrology, and transplantation. During these paired conversations, the faculty explore revised diagnostic criteria, emerging treatment, and coordinating effective multidisciplinary care. In addition, the faculty panel collaboratively reviews a patient case where they share international perspectives on the nonpharmacological and pharmacological treatment of patients with HRS-AKI.
