BACKGROUND Oxidative stress caused by contrast medium is thought to be one of the main mechanisms of contrast-induced acute kidney injury. A prospective study was conducted to evaluate the relationship between oxidative stress caused by contrast agent administration and long-term renal function. METHODS AND RESULTS Thirty-six consecutive patients who underwent coronary angiography were enrolled. Urinary F2-isoprostane, a marker of oxidative stress, was measured at baseline and 24h after… CONTINUE READING
