BACKGROUND Few studies that have assessed the effect of abbreviated oral N-acetylcysteine (NAC) regimens in radiocontrast-induced nephropathy (RCIN) yield mixed results. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the renoprotective effect of high periprocedural oral doses (HPOD) of NAC in patients with chronic renal impairment undergoing a same-day angiography. METHODS Sixty one patients with renal impaired function scheduled to undergo a same-day angiography were randomly assigned to NAC 1200 mg orally 3 hours… CONTINUE READING
