  • Rct have not founf thesehematoligical effects due to cocncomitant use of antiplatelet and anticoaugs
  • Osmoality dependent lead to release of adenosine
  • To compare similar degrees of injury regardless of the baseline serum level, the relative change in serum creatinine is a preferable metric (Table 2b). With a relative change definition, all patients lose the same percentage of renal function regardless of the level of renal function at baseline. There is still a bias, however, for a smaller absolute loss of GFR to satisfy the definition of CIN when there is a lower GFR at baseline. Finally, it follows from the above discussion that in patients with milder degrees of renal insufficiency (creatinine less than 2 mg/dl), the incidence of CIN will always be less when a 0.5 mg/dl absolute increase is used as a definition compared to a 25% increase in serum creatinine. A greater loss of GFR is necessary to satisfy the definition of CIN when the absolute change in serum creatinine is used (Table 2a vs b).Which definition, absolute or relative increase in serum creatinine, reflects outcomes the best? Gruberget al.1 correlated outcomes following contrast exposure in patients who underwent cardiac catheterization. A worse outcome (at 1 year) was found in those

  • There is no question that ccin lead to increased mortalityThis is the data from aretropective study of more than 16k pts who received contrast for any radiological procedure Odds of dying was 5 times high if cinoccured
  • How about CIN after PCI Ina study by peter mccollough the risk of inhospital mortality wasignificanlty higher in pts who had arf after pci and it was higher if they needed dialysis comapred to very low risk with no CIN
  • Thirty-one patients required hemodialysis during hospitalization.Their in-hospital mortality was 22.6%. Fourpatients were discharged on chronic dialysis. The cumulativeone-year mortality was significantly higher in patientswith renal function deterioration (37.7% vs. 19.4%, p 50.001, Table 5 and Fig. 2)—35.4% for those who did notrequire dialysis and 45.2% for those who required dialysis.Of the 17 patients who required in-hospital dialysis andwho were alive at one year, 3 required chronic dialysis.When the one-year mortality was compared with regardto the percent increase in creatinine, there was a noticeabledifference in patients with a 25% increase or greater (Fig. 3).Myocardial infarction and revascularization events weresimilar in both groupsAcute deterioration in renal function is a recognized complication after coronary angiographyand intervention.OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to determine the impact on acute and long-term mortality andmorbidity of contrast-induced deterioration in renal function after coronary intervention.METHODS We studied 439 consecutive patients who had a baseline serum creatinine $1.8 mg/dL(159.1 mmol/L) who were not on dialysis who underwent percutaneous coronary interventionin a tertiary referral center. All patients were hydrated before the procedure, and almost allreceived ioxaglatemeglumine; 161 (37%) patients had an increase in serum creatinine $25%within 48 h or required dialysis and 278 (63%) did not. In-hospital and out-of-hospitalclinical events (death, myocardial infarction, repeat revascularization) were assessed by sourcedocumentation.RESULTS Independent predictors of renal function deterioration were left ventricular ejection fraction(p 5 0.02) and contrast volume (p 5 0.01). In-hospital mortality was 14.9% for patients withfurther renal function deterioration versus 4.9% for patients with no creatinine increase (p 50.001); other complications were also more frequent. Thirty-one patients required hemodialysis;their in-hospital mortality was 22.6%. Four patients were discharged on chronicdialysis. The cumulative one-year mortality was 45.2% for those who required dialysis, 35.4%for those who did not require dialysis and 19.4% for patients with no creatinine increase (p 50.001). Independent predictors of one-year mortality were creatinine elevation (p 5 0.0001),age (p 5 0.03) and vein graft lesion location (p 5 0.08).CONCLUSIONS For patients with pre-existing renal insufficiency, renal function deterioration after coronaryintervention is a marker for poor outcomes. This is especially true for patients who requiredialysis. (J Am CollCardiol 2000;36:1542– 8) © 2000 by the American College ofCardiologyAcute deterioration in renal function is a recognized complicationafter coronary angiography, particularly for patientswith pre-existing chronic renal insufficiency (CRI)(1– 4). Previous studies have shown that 12 to 14% ofpatients who develop acute renal insufficiency during hospitalizationdo so after procedures involving radiographiccontrast (5,6). For patients with abnormal baseline renalfunction, the incidence of progressive deterioration can be ashigh as 42% (1,7). For hospitalized, critically ill patients,this carries a poor prognosis, especially if dialysis becomesnecessary (5–10).The expanding use of diagnostic and therapeutic percutaneousinterventions makes it important to understand thepotential risks
  • Based on risk score you see that there is linear and exponential increase in the incidenc of CINFrom 7.5 to 14 to 16 and 57
  • They also found that this score predicted need for inhospital dialysis and higher score were significantly associated with need for hd
  • Prognostic significance of the score and higher score had higher one yr mortality
  • I am not good at drawing
  • This is alist of ailed therapies thathave been tried and they should no longer be used infact some of these therapies can cause harmHypothesis discusss
  • Interestingly you see that pts with 0.9 hydration had less cin as compared to .45When you can hydrate the pt.

  • 2. Kidney in CV disease Cardiorenal overlap CKD is important independent predictor of mortality in patients with CAD (BERRY trial) Even in absence of CV risk factors, pts with renal insufficiency have elevated risk of CV disease Mild elevation in CR(>1.5mg/dl) are associated with development of CV events Microalbuminuria is independent risk factor for CV events, with RR higher than serum Cr ( 1.59 vs. 1.40) Hall Wo et al Am J Med Sci ,1999 Mann JF et al, Ann Intern Med 2001

Contrast Pharmacology Contrast sole function is to attenuate X-ray Radio-opacification achieved by given volume of contrast is function of iodine concentration Rough estimate : 125 ml contrast = 500ml of plasma volume expansion Excreted by kidney exclusively Anticoagulant and antiplatelet effect of CM has no clinical relevance

  • 51. Take home points Contrast-Induced Nephropathy is a common complication in higher-risk patients Even with chemical resolution of CIN and a return of serum creatinine towards baseline, the 1-year mortality remains over 25%, making prevention mandatory in higher-risk patients High-risk characteristics include renal insufficiency (Cr > 1.5 mg/dL) diabetes and contrast dose Pathophysiology of CIN seems to involve contrast- induced renal medullary ischemia
