Special Issue Information
A large proportion of patients admitted to hospital have various degrees of heart and kidney dysfunction. A diseased heart has numerous negative effects on kidney function but, at the same time, renal insufficiency can significantly impair cardiac function.
Thus, direct and indirect effects of each organ that is dysfunctional can initiate and perpetuate the combined disorder of the two organs through a complex combination of neurohormonal feedback mechanisms.
Primary disorders of one of these two organs often result in secondary dysfunction or injury to the other. Such interactions represent the pathophysiological basis for a clinical entity called cardiorenal syndrome (CRS). Although generally defined as a condition characterized by the initiation and/or progression of renal insufficiency secondary to heart failure, the term CRS is also used to describe the negative effects of reduced renal function on the heart and circulation. Recent advances in basic and clinical sciences have improved our understanding of organ crosstalk and have demonstrated the efficacy of some therapies in attenuating both cardiac and renal injury.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present clinical and experimental scientific reports that improve our understanding of these complex and important organ interactions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
