MESNA for Prevention of Acute Deterioration of Renal Function Following Contrast Agent Application
The purpose of this study is to determine wether Mesna could prevent contrast-induced nephropathy
Chronic Renal Insufficiency
Serum Creatinine Concentration
Contrast Media Exposition
Drug: sodium 2-mercaptoethane sulfonate
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Primary Purpose: Prevention
|Official Title:||MESNA Zur Prophylaxe Der Kontrastmittel-Induzierten Nephropathie|
- Contrast-agent associated nephrotoxicity was defined as an increase in serum creatinine concentration >0.5 mg/dl (44 umol/l) of the baseline value 48 h after administration of the contrast media.
- Need for dialysis after the administration of contrast media.
|Study Start Date:||October 2002|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||December 2004|
Contrast-induced nephropathy remains a common complication of radiographic precedures. Pretreatment with Mesna (Sodium 2-mercaptoethane sulfonate) in combination with sodium chloride is more protective than sodium chloride alone in animal models of acute renal failure.
The aim of this study is therefore to determine laboratory and clinical benefit of MESNA, as an adjunct to saline hydration, in patients with known renal impairment receiving contrast media.
