Abstract

BACKGROUND: Several strategies have been envisioned to reduce the risk of contrast-induced nephropathy, but the most modifiable approach for a treating physician is to minimize contrast administration. To date, there is no report on the use of Osprey Medical's new-generation DyeVert Plus system in coronary or peripheral applications. We aimed to appraise the role of the DyeVert Plus system inclusive of contrast reduction and real-time monitoring in a consecutive series of patients undergoing coronary or peripheral invasive procedures. METHODS: Baseline, procedural, and outcome details for patients undergoing coronary or peripheral invasive procedures were collected from our institutional database. We primarily focused on total and relative amount of contrast saved, as calculated and displayed by the DyeVert Plus system. RESULTS: The DyeVert Plus system was used in 10 patients. All procedures were successfully completed with adequate and high-quality angioscopic and angiographic images. No adverse events occurred up to discharge in any patients, with the notable exception of 1 case of asymptomatic and uneventful contrast-induced nephropathy. Average contrast volume was 79.9 ± 48.8 mL (95% confidence interval [CI], 53.2 to 109.4), thanks to an absolute saving of 55.8 ± 31.9 mL (95% CI, 39.1 to 76.7; P<.05) and a relative saving of 41.8 ± 7.3% (95% CI, 37.5 to 46.4; P<.05). Comparison of contrast volume estimates between DyeVert Plus vs manual measurements showed a minimal difference of 1.6 ± 1.9 mL (95% CI, 2.9 to 0.5; P<.05). CONCLUSION: Use of the new-generation DyeVert Plus system inclusive of contrast reduction and real-time monitoring is feasible in both coronary and peripheral applications while significantly reducing contrast volume.
