Prevention of Contrast Renal Injury With Different Hydration Strategies - POSEIDON (Prevention of Contrast Renal Injury)


Although intravenous hydration is routinely used to prevent contrast-induced hydration in patients undergoing cardiac catheterization, the optimal amount and duration are not defined. The current trial sought to compare intravenous hydration based on left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP) guidance with routine hydration in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) undergoing cardiac catheterization.
