A BSTRACT Background Radiographic contrast agents can cause a reduction in renal function that may be due to reactive oxygen species. Whether the reduction can be prevented by the administration of antioxidants is unknown. Methods We prospectively studied 83 patients with chronic renal insufficiency (mean [±SD] serum creatinine concentration, 2.4±1.3 mg per deciliter [216± 116 μmol per liter]) who were undergoing computed tomography with iopromide, a nonionic, low-osmolality contrast agent… CONTINUE READING
