Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/treatment
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

Outcome Measures

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