In recent years, with the acceptance of iodine contrast agent in clinical examination of patients increased gradually, especially the rapid development of China's current cardiovascular intervention level, the iodine contrast agent used more and more widely, and the contrast and contrast agent complications are closely related to the more and more cardiovascular doctors attention. At present, contrast induced nephropathy has become the third leading cause of hospital acquired renal failure. According to statistics, 12% of renal failure cases are caused by contrast induced nephropathy.

In the recently held Twentieth Annual the Great Wall international cardiology conference, reporters learned that a contrast study of CARE long-term follow-up results showed that dianbile (iopamidol) and compared osmolar contrast medium iodixanol, after 1 years of long-term adverse clinical events were significantly lower. This breakthrough has brought new clinical strategies for the prevention of renal injury in the future.

Contrast nephropathy

Contrast  nephropathy (CIN) refers to acute renal damage occurring within 48 to 72 hours after the injection of iodinated contrast agents. It is an important complication of iodinated contrast agent, is also the main reason for acute renal dysfunction, especially for patients with renal dysfunction patients led to the obvious increase of the short and long term increase in adverse events and medical expenses. The disease is not a rare complication after contrast diagnosis or treatment. The relationship between CIN and long-term adverse events in patients with cardiovascular interventions has been debated. Although the association with long-term outcomes in cardiovascular interventions has been reported, the medical community has not yet reached a definitive conclusion whether CIN is causally associated with long-term adverse events.
