Closed-loop system reduces kidney injury rate in CV interventional procedures

Closed-loop system reduces kidney injury rate in CV interventional procedures
September 18, 2017

In moderate- to high-risk patients with chronic kidney disease undergoing cardiac interventional procedures, a closed-loop system significantly reduced rates of contrast-induced acute kidney injury and was linked to decreased rates of mortality, dialysis and MACCE vs. standard intravascular volume expansion, according to data published in the Journal of Interventional Cardiology.

Anand Prasad, MD, FACC, FASCI, RPVI, from the department of medicine and division of cardiology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, and colleagues conducted a meta-analysis of 10 existing studies comparing the use of the RenalGuard (RenalGuard Solutions) novel closed- loop system with standard care.
