Journal: Cardiorenal Medicine - Extended Manuscript Submission Deadline: June 30, 2024

The pathophysiologic pathways linking cardiovascular disease and kidney dysfunction are complex and have been the focus of intense investigations over the past several years. There have been significant advances in our understanding of these mechanisms and several therapeutic agents have also been introduced.   

The goal of this Call for Papers is to bring together articles related to interactions between the heart and the kidney in a variety of settings with special emphasis on the novel concepts as well as the controversies that need future research. For this article collection "Emerging Cardiorenal Concepts and Controversies", the journal will consider original research articles, brief reports, and review articles focusing on, but not limited to, the following topics: 

  • Hypertension in heart failure 
  • Biomarkers in heart failure and cardiorenal syndrome 
  • Kidney-heart transplant in cardiorenal syndrome 
  • Kidney in advanced heart failure 
  • Diuretic resistance and decongestive strategies in heart failure  
  • Precision medicine and cardiorenal syndrome
