AIMS Diabetes mellitus and decreased renal function are important risk factors for contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) in which oxidative stress damage may play a role. Alkalinization with sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO₃) has been proposed as a means of reducing free-radical mediated renal injury; however, the effectiveness of NaHCO₃ treatment to prevent CIN in high-risk patients remains uncertain. METHODS We performed a prospective, randomized, double blind, sodium chloride (NaCl) hydration… CONTINUE READING
