The investigators intend to find out which contrast agent has less kidney toxicity in renal impaired patients undergoing cardiac angiography or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

Condition Intervention Phase
Kidney Failure, Chronic Drug: Iopromide (Ultravist) Drug: Iodixanol (Visipaque) Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-blinded Comparison of Iopromide and Iodixanol in Renally Impaired Patients Undergoing Cardiac Catheterization

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of patients exhibiting a relative increase in serum creatinine >= 50% from baseline. [ Time Frame: day 3 postreatment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of patients developing acute renal failure. [ Time Frame: day 30 postreatment ]
  • Incidence of a postdose SCr increase ≧25%, a postdose SCr increase ≧1mg/dL, a postdose SCr increase ≧0.5mg/dL, a postdose eGFR decrease ≧25% [ Time Frame: days 3 ]

Enrollment: 592
Study Start Date: February 2009
Study Completion Date: May 2011
Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Iopromide
Drug: Ultravist 370 mgl/ml, injection of intra-artery during cardiac interventional operation
Drug: Iopromide (Ultravist)
Iopromide (contrast agent), 370 mgl/ml, an nonionic, monomeric, LOCM
Other Name: Ultravist
Active Comparator: Iodixanol
Drug: Visipaque 320 mgl/ml, injection of intra-artery
Drug: Iodixanol (Visipaque)
Iodixanol (contrast agent) 320 mgl/ml, a nonionic, dimeric, IOCM
Other Name: Visipaque

Detailed Description:
In the diagnosis and treatment of coronary heart disease, patients should undergo cardiac angiography or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). In those procedures, the investigators should use the contrast media, and it may cause kidney toxicity especially in the patients with chronic renal insufficiency.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
