BACKGROUND Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is a frequent complication following angiographic procedures with significant impact on healthcare costs, and long-term outcomes. Multiple reno-protective strategies have been studied but few have shown benefit in prospective randomized studies beyond limiting the exposure to iodinated contrast and adequate intravenous. We studied the performance and safety of a novel system designed to achieve precise real-time high volume fluid balance using a… CONTINUE READING
