BACKGROUND Age, estimated glomerular renal function (eGFR), and ejection fraction are preprocedural predictors of contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) after primary percutaneous coronary intervention. The effect of renal function-adjusted contrast volume (CV) remains not totally explored, and a threshold has not yet been established. METHODS AND RESULTS Logistic regression and receiver-operating characteristic curve analyses were used to assess whether CV/eGFR was an independent… CONTINUE READING
