Zero-contrast PCI in Patients With CKD Can Cut Risk of Later Dialysis
For a technique that relies heavily on intravascular imaging to guide coronary stenting in patients with chronic kidney disease, there's no contrast. Avoidance of contrast-induced nephropathy is important with any percutaneous coronary intervention, but the way to avoid it with certainty — and to make PCI safer in patients already with renal disease — would be not to use contrast agent at all.
