Abstract

Continuous increase in the number of coronary angiography and coronary angioplasty, using contrast medium, particularly in patients with impaired renal function, has led to increase in the number of patients with iatrogenic kidney damage. Among the numerous attempts to protect kidneys against damage induced by contrast administration, interesting option seems to be the use of ischaemic preconditioning.
