BACKGROUND Acute deterioration in renal function is a recognized complication after coronary angiography and intervention. OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to determine the impact on acute and long-term mortality and morbidity of contrast-induced deterioration in renal function after coronary intervention. METHODS We studied 439 consecutive patients who had a baseline serum creatinine > or = 1.8 mg/dL (159.1 /micromol/L) who were not on dialysis who underwent percutaneous coronary… CONTINUE READING
