Drug: sodium bicarbonate solution
Drug: Isotonic saline
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional

Further study details as provided by Ospedale Misericordia e Dolce:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of contrast-induced acute kidney injury [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    contrast-induced acute kidney injury is defined as an increase in serum creatinine >= 0.3 mg/dL over the baseline value within 2 days after the administration of the contrast medium

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • adverse clinical events [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    adverse clinical events within 1 month including in-hospital death and need for dialysis or hemofiltration

Enrollment: 300
Study Start Date: January 2011
Study Completion Date: October 2013
Primary Completion Date: October 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Sodium bicarbonate
Sodium Bicarbonate (154 mEq/L in dextrose and H2O) 3 mL/kg for 1 hour before contrast medium, followed by an infusion of 1 mL/kg/h for 12 hours after the procedure
Drug: sodium bicarbonate solution
Other Name: 154 mEq/L in dextrose and H2O
Active Comparator: Saline
Sodium Saline 3 mL/kg for 1 hour before contrast medium, followed by an infusion of 1 mL/kg/h for 12 hours after the procedure
Drug: Isotonic saline
Other Name: 0.9% sodium chloride
