Comparative Effectiveness of 12 Treatment Strategies for Preventing Contrast-Induced Acute Kidney Injury: A Systematic Review and Bayesian Network Meta-analysis
This systematic review included 150 trials with 31,631 participants and 4,182 contrast-induced AKI events assessing 12 different interventions. The conclusion was that high-dose statin plus NAC or high-dose statin alone were ranked the one/two for preventing contrast-induced AKI with no significant changes noted in metaregressions or subgroup and sensitivity analyses.
