Prevalence of Chronic Kidney Disease and Its Association With Clinical Outcome in Patients With Coronary Heart Disease

The primary aim of the study is to evaluate the prevalence of chronic kidney disease(CKD) in patients with stable coronary heart disease. The secondary aims include: 1. To evaluate the awareness of CKD in patients with stable coronary heart disease. 2. To find out risk factors that is associated with ...

Phase N/A

Safety of Low Dose IV Contrast CT Scanning in Chronic Kidney Disease

The use of radio contrast medium enhances the image quality of CT scans. However, contrast CT is avoided in patients with CKD for fear of contrast-induced nephropathy. The current standard of care for these patients is CT without contrast. Taking advantage of fast scanning capabilities of modern CT scanners (64-Multi-Detector ...


Prevention of Contrast Nephropathy During Diagnostic Coronary Angiogram or PCI With Hydratation Based on LEVDP

The goal is to determine if prehydration based on LEVDP is superior to a standard hydratation, independant of volemic status, with NaCl 0.9% or NaHCO3 for the prevention of contrast nephropathy related to a diagnostic coronary angiogram or to PCI.


Clinical Feature and Outcome of Angiographic Coronary Artery Disease in Chronic Kidney Disease Patients

All patients who underwent cardiac catheterization for assessment of CAD at Keelung Chang Gung Memorial Hospital between 1992 and 2004 with continuous serum creatinine values measured before admission were included in this analysis. Data were obtained from medical records of the database center of our institution. Demographic and clinical data ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Stenting Versus Best Medical Therapy for Treatment of Ostial Renal Artery Stenosis: a Trial in Patients With Advanced Atherosclerosis

Renal artery stenosis (RAS) usually refers to a disease of the large extra-renal arterial vessels and most frequently is caused by atherosclerotic obstructions. The prevalence of atherosclerotic RAS increases with age, male gender, traditional cardiovascular risk factors (hypertension, diabetes, smoking, hyperlipidemia) and atherosclerotic comorbidities like coronary artery or peripheral artery ...


Renal Stenting With Distal Atheroembolic Protection

This is a randomized trial of patients with an ostial ARAS and refractory hypertension and or renal failure. Patients will be randomized to: (i) renal artery stent placement with distal embolic protection (ii) renal artery stent placement without distal embolic protection To both groups an optimal medical treatment consisting of ...


Renal Blood Flow Measurement With Positron Emission Tomography (PET)

Two investigational chemical tracers, 62Cu-ethylglyoxal bis(thiosemicarbazone) (62Cu-ETS) and 15O-water, will be used in this study to look at how blood moves through the kidneys. The purpose of the study is to see if 62Cu-ETS is effective in showing the blood supply to the kidneys compared to 15O-water. The tracer mixes ...
