Radiocontrast exposure is associated with vasoconstriction of the renal vascular bed and, in certain circumstances, with acute renal failure. This may be influenced by the volume of contrast infused or underlying disease, such as diabetes or renal failure. Changes in circulating vascular regulators, such as endothelin and atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), may play a role in the development and/or prevention of acute renal failure. Nineteen patients undergoing arteriographic procedures were… CONTINUE READING
