The Influence of Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitors and Angiotensin Receptor Blockers on Renal Function in Patients Undergoing Non-emergent Coronary Angiography
The aim of the current study is to evaluate prospectively whether concomitant administration of RAAS blockers (namely ACE-I and ARBs') influence the change in estimated GFR (eGFR) after administration of contrast media in patients undergoing non-emergent coronary angiography.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A set of surgical procedures performed to establish sufficient outflow to the systemic circulation in individuals with univentricular congenital heart malformations, such as HYPOPLASTIC LEFT HEART SYNDROME, and MITRAL VALVE atresia, associated with systemic outflow obstruction. Follow-on surgeries may be performed and consist of a HEMI-FONTAN PROCEDURE as the stage 2 Norwood procedure and a FONTAN PROCEDURE as the stage 3 Norwood procedure.
Heart Arrest, Induced
A procedure to stop the contraction of MYOCARDIUM during HEART SURGERY. It is usually achieved with the use of chemicals (CARDIOPLEGIC SOLUTIONS) or cold temperature (such as chilled perfusate).
A surgical procedure which diverts pancreatobiliary secretions via the duodenum and the jejunum into the colon, the remaining small intestine being anastomosed to the stomach after antrectomy. The procedure produces less diarrhea than does jejunoileal bypass.
The procedure of presenting the conditioned stimulus without REINFORCEMENT to an organism previously conditioned. It refers also to the diminution of a conditioned response resulting from this procedure.
A surgical procedure involving the excision of the COLON and RECTUM and the formation of an ILEOANAL RESERVOIR (pouch). In patients with intestinal diseases, such as ulcerative colitis, this procedure avoids the need for an OSTOMY by allowing for transanal defecation.
Deterioration of kidney renal function occurs in a minority of people due to contrast-required procedures. The purpose of this study is to compare two different interventions to reduce the...
This study will compare patients with mild to moderate prolongation of the INR test who receive FFP infusions prior to invasive hepatobiliary procedures for bleeding complications to patie...
Epidural injection will be completed under fluoroscopy and all patients will receive 1-4 mg of Midazolam for relaxation before procedure and, if needed, 50-100 mcg of Fentanyl intravenous...
Colonoscopy is usually associated with coiling ("looping") of the colonoscope (instrument used for the procedure) in parts of the bowel. This is the main reason for patient discomfort and...
Patients requiring long term anticoagulation often undergo transition of their warfarin to heparin in anticipation of invasive surgical procedures such as pacemaker or ICD implantation. Th...
Humans and lower animals time as if using a stopwatch that can be "stopped" or "reset" on command. This view is challenged by data from the peak-interval procedure with gaps: Unexpected retention inte...
The circadian oscillation is known to stop with prolonged inhibition of protein synthesis and to restart from a particular phase after the removal of inhibition. In order to know the underlying molecu...
INTRODUCTION: In the era of new-targeted therapies and neoadjuvant strategies, this article highlights the role of angiogenesis in the process of physiological wound healing with a review of literatur...
ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this paper was to compare two mathematical procedures to estimate the annual attributable number of deaths (the Allison et al procedure and the Mokdad et al procedu...
AIM: Aim of this study is to demonstrate that the circumferential stapled procedure for rectal varices is a feasible and suitable method of controlling bleeding varices. PATIENTS: Between 2004 and Dec...
