  Purpose

In this randomized study the investigators wish to explore the role of pre-procedural statin therapy for the prevention of contrast induced nephropathy in patients with moderate-to-severe renal dysfunction, submitted to elective coronary or angioplasty.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Contrast-induced nephropathy was defined as an absolute increase of at least 0.5 mg/dl from the baseline value in serum creatinine concentration within the first 24 hours after contrast exposure and peaking up to 5 days afterwards [ Time Frame: within 5 days after contrast exposure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Relative increase ≥ 25% over baseline serum creatinine within 5 days after contrast agent administration [ Time Frame: within 5 days after contrast agent administration ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Adverse clinical events within 1 month, including in-hospital death and need for dialysis or hemofiltration [ Time Frame: 1 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 304
