Abstract 13032: Resolution of Congestion Before Coronary Angiography in Acute Heart Failure is Associated With Reduced Risk of Contrast-induced Acute Kidney Injury
Objectives: We investigated the risk factors for contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CIAKI) after coronary angiography (CAG) in patients with acute heart failure (AHF), especially with regard to the volume status.
Background: Heart failure is a well-known risk factor for CIAKI after CAG. In HF patients, renal perfusion decreases with systemic congestion. Thus, the standard prevention strategy with isotonic solution infusion may be inappropriate while decongestion may be beneficiary in AHF patients undergoing CAG. Deviation from dry body weight suggests imbalanced volume status.
Methods: A total of 199 AHF patients who underwent CAG were eligible for the analysis. Absolute deviation of body weight (
