Renal hypoxia plays an important role in the development of contrast-induced nephropathy. The purpose of the PRINCIPLE study is to investigate the effect of pretreatment with intravenous nicorandil on the incidence of contrast-induced nephropathy in patients with renal insufficiency undergoing coronary angiography.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

We compared the infarct and edema size in ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) treated by nicorandi...
Survival after invasive coronary revascularization is worse in patients with chronic kidney disease than in those without it. The investigators aimed to examine whether oral administration...
Patients planned for elective conventional coronary angiography will undergo CT coronary angiography (Dual Source CT) in order to assess the correlation of stenosis detection and therapeut...
The purpose of this study is to test the ability of a new X-ray technique called CT angiography to identify significant narrowing of the coronary arteries compared to traditional coronary ...
In patients undergoing coronary angiography, the incidence of contrast induced nephropathy(CIN)varies widely and ranges from < 5% in the lowest risk patients, to nearly 50% in the highest ...
To assess the diagnostic performance of angiography-derived fractional flow reserve (FFRangio) measurements in patients with stable coronary artery disease when used online in the catheterization labo...
To investigate the progression of coronary atherosclerosis burden by coronary CT angiography (CCTA) and to demonstrate its association with the incidence of major adverse cardiac events (MACE).
The need for coronary computed tomography (CTA) is still a matter of discussion. Areas in which CTA can replace invasive coronary angiography are rare. More data is needed to precise in which clinical...
Implantation of radiopaque bypass graft markers during coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) has the potential of facilitating subsequent coronary angiography. This study sought to investigate the imp...
Acute coronary syndrome is a common cause of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). In patients with OHCA presenting with ST elevation, immediate coronary angiography and potential percutaneous corona...
A derivative of the NIACINAMIDE that is structurally combined with an organic nitrate. It is a potassium-channel opener that causes vasodilatation of arterioles and large coronary arteries. Its nitrate-like properties produce venous vasodilation through stimulation of guanylate cyclase.
Radiography of the vascular system of the heart muscle after injection of a contrast medium.
Visualization of a vascular system after intravenous injection of a fluorescein solution. The images may be photographed or televised. It is used especially in studying the retinal and uveal vasculature.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
