Abstract

Radiocontrast-induced nephropathy (RCIN) is an important cause of acute kidney injury, increasing in-hospital and long-term mortality. It is controversial whether prophylactic renal replacement therapy (RRT) may reduce a patient's risk of RCIN when compared with standard medical therapy (SMT). We searched through PubMed and bibliographies of retrieved articles. Published studies of RRT for RCIN prevention in patients receiving radiocontrast were included. The primary endpoint was RCIN incidence, defined as an increase in serum creatinine
