Anemia Identified as Risk Factor for Contrast-Induced Acute Kidney Injury

Anemia Identified as Risk Factor for Contrast-Induced Acute Kidney Injury

Anemia with a baseline hemoglobin <13 g/dL was associated with a more than 5-fold increased risk for contrast-induced acute kidney injury in patients undergoing coronary angiography.

Chronic Total Occlusions on CCTA Increase Major Adverse Cardiac Event Risk

Chronic Total Occlusions on CCTA Increase Major Adverse Cardiac Event Risk

A significantly higher rate of adverse cardiac events was observed in chronic total occlusions compared with moderate to severe coronary artery disease.
