Listening Do you mean hepatorenal failure!

Are you asking about hepatopulmonary or hepatorenal syndrome!

In hepatopulmonary syndrome you don't have renal failure

See what I wrote here
Platypnea and Orthodeoxia

Hepatopulmonary syndrome is characterized by vasodilatation of pulmonary vessels..

Hepatorenal
syndrome is characterized by severe cortical vasoconstriction..

The mechanism of such changes are still poorly understood!
They can occur simultaneously or separately..
