In the treatment of coronary heart disease which is the major cause of heart attack, direct mechanical treatment with catheters such as the coronary angiography, coronary balloon intervention and stenting intervention are the mainstay of therapy in recent years. In that procedures, the investigators should use the contrast media, and it may cause kidney toxicity especially in the patients with underlying kidney disease and decreased kidney function. The investigators intended to find out which contrast agent has less kidney toxicity in the catheter based treatment of coronary arterial diseases in patients with underlying decreased kidney function

Condition Intervention Phase
Chronic Renal Insufficiency Coronary Angiography Drug: contrast agent (iopromide) Drug: contrast agent (iodixanol) Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Comparison of Contrast-medium Induced Nephrotoxicity Between Iodixanol and Iopromide in Patients With Renal Insufficiency Undergoing Coronary Angiography

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of contrast induced nephropathy, defined as either a relative increase in serum creatinine from baseline of >=25% or an absolute increase of >=0.5mg/dL(44.2µmol/L) [ Time Frame: days 1 and 2 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • proportion of patients exhibiting an increase in serum creatinine of >=0.5mg/dL(44.2µmol/L), the proportion with a >=1.0 mg/dL(88.4µmol/L) increase in serum creatinine, and the mean peak increase in serum creatinine [ Time Frame: days 1 and 2 ]

Estimated Enrollment: 420
Study Start Date: February 2009
Study Completion Date: June 2010
Primary Completion Date: May 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: iopromide Drug: contrast agent (iopromide)
coronary angiography using the allocated contrast agent
Experimental: iodixanol Drug: contrast agent (iodixanol)
coronary angiography using the allocated contrast agent

Detailed Description:
Iodixanol, a nonionic, dimeric, iso-osmolar contrast medium (IOCM), may be less nephrotoxic than nonionic, monomeric, low-osmolar contrast media (LOCMs) in high-risk patients. We compared the nephrotoxicity of iodixanol with that of iopromide, an nonionic, monomeric LOCM, in patients with renal impairment.
