BACKGROUND No well-defined protocols currently exist regarding the optimal rate and duration of normal saline administration to prevent contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) in patients with renal insufficiency. METHODS AND RESULTS Hydration volume ratios (hydration volume/weight; HV/W) were calculated in 1406 patients with renal insufficiency(More)
We investigated whether attempted percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusion (CTO) would improve the prognosis in patients with renal insufficiency at high risk of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN). We analyzed 2,330 consecutive patients with renal insufficiency with or without CTOs who underwent coronary angiography or PCI from(More)
Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) develops after the injection of iodinated contrast media. This is a post hoc analysis of the data obtained from the TRUST study, which was a prospective, multicentre, observational study conducted to evaluate the safety and tolerability of the contrast medium iopromide in patients undergoing cardiac catheterization from(More)
A low urine flow rate is a marker of acute kidney injury. However, it is unclear whether a high urine flow rate is associated with a reduced risk of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) in high-risk patients. We conducted this study to evaluate the predictive value of the urine flow rate for the risk of CIN following emergent percutaneous coronary(More)
