Recruitment status was Recruiting
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of NAC or sodium bicarbonate in preventing the aggravation of renal function in chronic renal failure when enhanced computed tomography scan is checked in emergency room.
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
- the rate of CIN [ Time Frame: 3 days after CT scan ]
- mortality [ Time Frame: 30 days after CT scan ]
|Study Start Date:||March 2007|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||October 2010|
CIN is frequent in CRF patients. However most studies about CIN has been focusing on elective PCI patients. There is no study that the NAC nor sodium bicarbonate would help in preventing CIN in CRF patients who need enhanced CT scan in ED.
Our intention was to investigate the effect of NAC or sodium bicarbonate in preventing the aggravation of renal function in chronic renal failure when enhanced computed tomography scan is checked in emergency room.
