Intravenous iodinated contrast media are commonly used with CT to evaluate disease and to determine treatment response. The risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) developing in patients with reduced kidney...
Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) has long been observed in both experimental and clinical studies. However, recent observational studies have questioned the prevalence and severity of CIN following ...
This article is an evidence-based overview of acute kidney injuries in patients seen in the emergency department setting. The article outlines the current definition of acute kidney injuries and most ...
The nephrotoxicity of modern contrast media remains controversial. Novel biomarkers of kidney damage may help in identifying a subclinical structural renal injury not revealed by widely used markers o...
The overall risk of postcontrast acute kidney injury (PC-AKI) after computerized tomography (CT) is negligible, likely because of the small volume of injected iodinated contrast media required. Howeve...
It is well known that X-ray contrast media can affect kidney function in some patients, especially when administered intra-arterially, and patients who already suffer from reduced kidney f...
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare the effects on kidney function of two contrast media, the iso-osmolar iodixanol and the low-osmolar iopamidol in patients at risk ...
Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is an important adverse effect of percutaneous coronary interventions. Despite various efforts, very few preventive measures have been shown e...
Contrast media-induced nephropathy following diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac catheterization.
This study aims to investigate whether acceptable image quality is achievable using low contrast media dose and low keV imaging in chronic kidney disease.
A water-soluble radiographic contrast media for cholecystography and intravenous cholangiography.
Abrupt reduction in kidney function defined as an absolute increase in serum CREATININE of more than or equal to 0.3. mg/dl, a percentage increase in serum creatinine of more than or equal to 50%, or a reduction in urine output. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.
Acute kidney failure resulting from destruction of EPITHELIAL CELLS of the KIDNEY TUBULES. It is commonly attributed to exposure to toxic agents or renal ISCHEMIA following severe TRAUMA.
Any liquid or solid preparation made specifically for the growth, storage, or transport of microorganisms or other types of cells. The variety of media that exist allow for the culturing of specific microorganisms and cell types, such as differential media, selective media, test media, and defined media. Solid media consist of liquid media that have been solidified with an agent such as AGAR or GELATIN.
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
