ABSTRACT The present clinical trial addressed the clearance of the contrast medium iopromide, a middle-sized molecule, during dialysis with high- and low-flux membranes.
Twenty chronic haemodialysis patients without residual renal function were dialysed either with low-flux haemophan or high-flux polyamide directly after application of the contrast medium. Iodine concentrations were determined by radiofluorescence methods.
Plasma concentrations of iodine before dialysis ranged between 1.1 and 3.9 mg/ml. The mean clearance rates for both membranes were comparable (110+/-1.4 ml/min high-flux and 108+/-1.9 ml/min low-flux), the sieving-coefficient was 0.83 for both membranes. After three hours of dialysis, 58% (high-flux) and 62% (low-flux) of iopromide was removed, half time of elimination was reached after 140+/-16 min (high-flux) and 122+/-11 min (low-flux).
Our results demonstrated that elimination of iopromide is not dependent on the pore size of the membrane during dialysis. Due to higher blood flow rate, we found a higher elimination rate and a reduced half-time of elimination than prior investigations.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the influence of different membrane materials on the efficiency of iopromide elimination. Twenty stable patients with chronic renal failure after coronary angiography were investigated for contrast medium elimination during hemodialysis directly after contrast medium application. Clearance during hemodialysis with cuprophan membranes was 102 +/- 7 mg/ml in contrast to 153 +/- 4 mg/ml in polysulfone membranes. Elimination half-time was 94 +/- 5 min in cuprophan and 79 +/- 3 min in polysulfone membranes, and the elimination rate after 120 min was 59 +/- 2% and 66 +/- 1.5% respectively. Plasma clearance of iopromide was elevated in polysulfone membranes (188 +/-17 ml/min); however, not significantly different to cuprophane membranes (153 +/-11 ml/min). Accordingly, 24-h urinary iopromide excretion was reduced to 26 +/- 4 g/24 h vs. 32 +/- 7 g/24 h. Hemodialysis for iopromide elimination with polysulfone membranes is more effective than with cuprophan membranes.

    ABSTRACT: •A frequent and expensive problem. Ninety percent of contrast media nephrotoxicity (CMN) occur in patients with pre-existing kidney failure. Its aggravation may require early chronic dialysis.•Preventive measures. CMN prophylaxis is important in these patients. Pre- and post-hydration, with infusion of isotonic saline solution or sodium bicarbonate, and reduction of contrast medium (CM) volume to the strict minimum are essential for preventing CM-induced kidney failure.•The interest of prophylactic hemodialysis and hemofiltration. An interesting approach in preventing CMN is the early elimination of the CM with dialysis techniques. Preventive hemodialysis does not reduce the risk of CMN, but hemofiltration has shown significant efficacy in a population of patients with kidney failure.•The interest of immediate hemodialysis in chronic hemodialysis patients. Although nephrotoxicity is no longer a problem in patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis, CM, especially in high-dose injections, may be responsible for fluid and electrolyte abnormalities and/or volemic expansion. No data yet justify a conclusion that a hemodialysis session immediately after injection of a CM in chronic dialysis patients might be helpful.

    ABSTRACT: Contrast induced acute kidney injury is an important complication after cardiac (invasive) procedures and is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. The aim of the current article is to provide a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge regarding contrast induced acute kidney injury. Current literature was reviewed and relevant articles were selected. Articles were identified through MEDLINE and Pubmed selecting articles, limited between 1980 and 2010. The pathophysiological process resulting in contrast induced acute kidney injury is not completely understood, nevertheless several mechanisms involved have been proposed. However, the risk factors for contrast induced acute kidney injury and its timing are well known, making it amenable for preventive strategies. In the past decade various preventive strategies have been investigated with different results. Currently, only adequate hydration, with saline, is uniformly accepted as a beneficial prophylactic strategy. Furthermore promising results have also been reported for several other prophylactic strategies. These results, however, need to be confirmed in future trials.
