THE ASSOCIATION BETWEEN THE INCIDENCE OF CONTRAST-INDUCED NEPHROPATHY AND DIABETES IN PATIENTS WITH NORMAL RENAL FUNCTION UNDERGOING CARDIAC CATHETERIZATION
Alaa Raslan, MD*, Hussein Saied, PHD, Akram Jahjah, PHD
Even though diabetic nephropathy is a well-known risk factor for CIN, the tendency of diabetic patients with normal renal function to develop CIN remains controversial Aim: Identifying the possible association between diabetes with normal renal function and the incidence of CIN. Methods: This is a prospective analytical study that has included 111 patients, all underwent an objective exam, hematochemical measurements. The patients were divided into two groups depending on the presence of diabetes. The incidence of CIN (defined as an increase in creatinine level equal or more than 25% from baseline values within 48-72 hours after the coronary procedure) was compared in the two groups. Results: CIN took place in 23 patients, 8 of them were in the diabetic group. No significant difference was noted in the incidence of CIN in the diabetic and non-diabetic group (24% vs 19% respectively with a p value of 0.55) Conclusion: No significant association between the incidence of CIN and diabetes was noted in patients with normal renal function.[Full Text Article]
