BACKGROUND/AIM The purpose of this study is to find the frequency of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) and to show the risk factors in the development of CIN and the diagnostic utility of serum cystatin C (CysC) and serum and urine neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) during childhood following cardiac angiography. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this prospective study, we studied 46 children with congenital heart disease. The levels of serum creatinine, serum CysC, and serum NGAL were… CONTINUE READING
