Abstract

Contrast-associated acute kidney injury, resulting from the use of iodinated contrast media, is a well-known adverse event following endovascular procedures and is associated with poor prognosis when it happens. There is an abundance of literature studying acute kidney injury following percutaneous coronary interventions, with very few studies done in the setting of percutaneous peripheral intervention. Although both percutaneous coronary intervention and percutaneous peripheral intervention utilize iodinated contrast media, several differences exist that can affect the incidence and management of contrast-associated acute kidney injury. This article aims to review what we currently know about contrast-associated acute kidney injury and available prevention strategies, specifically following percutaneous peripheral interventions.
