Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


Gurm et al demonstrated that in PCI, the use of ultra low volume compared with higher contrast volumes (CVs), was associated with significant lower risk of developing acute kidney injury (AKI) and new need for dialysis. Thirteen percent of the study population had PCI using ultra low CV. Future studies are needed to explore further utilization of the suggested threshold when performing PCI in high risk patients.
