Cooling to Prevent Radiocontrast Nephropathy - COOL-RCN


Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) post-cardiac catheterization has been associated with poor outcomes. Patients with pre-existing renal dysfunction are at especially higher risk of developing CIN. The current trial sought to determine the utility of systemic hypothermia in patients with a creatinine clearance between 20 and 50 ml/min receiving iodinated contrast.
