BACKGROUND Several risk factors for contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) have been identified. The cumulative effect of these risk factors on renal function has been assessed with the development of risk score models in a number of studies. However, concerns were raised that estimates of the risk attributable to individual factors may be unreliable. We sought to develop a simple risk score for developing CIN after PCI irrespective of use of… CONTINUE READING
