Inclusion Criteria:

- Patients who were diagnosed with HRS type 1 according to the diagnostic criteria of HRS and whose serum creatinine value (SCr) doubled at 2.5 mg/dL or greater within 2 weeks or whose 24h creatinine clearance (Ccr) decreased by half at less than 20 mL/min.

Patients should meet all the following 5 criteria:

[Modified International Ascites Club's Diagnostic criteria of HRS]

  1. Chronic or acute liver disease with advanced hepatic failure and portal hypertension.
  2. Low glomerular filtration rate (SCr >1.5 mg/dL or 24h Ccr <40 mL/min)
  3. Absence of shock, ongoing bacterial infection, current or recent (within 2 weeks) treatment with nephrotoxic drug
  4. No sustained improvement in renal function (decrease in SCr to 1.5 mg/dL or less or increase in 24h Ccr to 40 mL/min or more) following diuretic withdrawal and expansion of plasma volume with 1,500 mL/24h of isotonic saline for 24 to 48h.
  5. Protein urea <500 mg/dL, and no ultrasonographic evidence of obstructive uropathy or parenchymal renal disease

    • Age; 20 to 79 years

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Cr value ≥5 mg/dL
  • Child-Pugh Score ≥14
  • Fulminant hepatitis
  • Septic shock
  • Hepatocellular carcinoma that does not meet the Milan Criteria
  • Acute renal failure caused by contrast medium
  • Chronic renal failure
  • Bradycardia (heart rate <50/min)
  • Hyponatraemia (serum Na <120 mEq/L)
  • Ischemic heart diseases (angina pectoris, myocardial infarction), heart failure or clinically relevant arrhythmia
