Sodium Bicarbonate Versus Saline for the Prevention of Contrast-Induced Nephropathy - Sodium Bicarbonate Versus Saline for the Prevention of Contrast-Induced Nephropathy

Description:

Prior studies seem to indicate that sodium bicarbonate infusion is beneficial in the reduction of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN), compared with isotonic saline, in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) undergoing coronary angiography or intervention. The current study aimed to study a larger population of patients with CKD for a longer duration of time, to determine if there was a true difference between sodium bicarbonate and isotonic saline in the prevention of CIN in patients with CK...
