OBJECTIVES: We sought to evaluate the association between contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and severity of bleeding estimated from periprocedural hemoglobin (Hb) measurement. BACKGROUND: The relationship between CI-AKI and bleeding in contemporary practice remains controversial. METHODS: In a retrospective analysis of the prospectively maintained JCD-KICS multicenter registry, we divided 2646 consecutive patients into 5 groups according to the change of Hb level post relative to pre PCI: patients without Hb level decrease (Group A); and patients with decreased Hb level: <1g/dL (Group B); 1-<2g/dL (Group C); 2-<3g/dL (Group D); and >3g/dL (Group E). CI-AKI was defined as an increase in serum creatinine (Cr) level ≥0.5 mg/dL or ≥25% above baseline values at 48 hours after administration of contrast media. Procedural and outcome variables were compared. RESULTS: Mean age was 67±11 years. Of 2646 patients, 315 (11.9%) developed CI-AKI. CI-AKI incidence was 6.2%, 7.5%, 10.7%, 17.0%, and 26.2%, in groups A through E, respectively (P < 0.01), whereas incidence of major bleeding was 0.7%, 1.3%, 2.0%, 4.1%, and 28.3%, respectively (P < 0.01). CI-AKI was associated with higher rates of mortality (5.4% vs. 0.6%, P < 0.01), and also of the composite of heart failure, cardiogenic shock, and death (16.5% vs. 2.8%, P < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Periprocedural bleeding was significantly associated with CI-AKI, with CI-AKI incidence correlating with bleeding severity.

    ABSTRACT: Gender differences in clinical outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) among different age groups are controversial in the era of drug-eluting stents, especially among the Asian population who are at higher risk for bleeding complications. We analyzed data from 10,220 patients who underwent PCI procedures performed at 14 Japanese hospitals from September 2008 to April 2013. A total of 2,106 (20.6%) patients were women. Women were older (72.7±9.7 vs 66.6±10.8 years, p<0.001), and had a lower body mass index (23.4±4.0 vs 24.3±3.5, p<0.001), with a higher prevalence of hypertension (p<0.001), hyperlipidemia (p<0.001), insulin-dependent diabetes (p<0.001), renal failure (p<0.001), and heart failure (p<0.001) compared with men. Men tended to have more bifurcation lesions (p = 0.003) and chronic totally occluded lesions (p<0.001) than women. Crude overall complications (14.8% vs 9.5%, p<0.001) and the rate of bleeding complications (5.3% vs 2.8%, p<0.001) were significantly higher in women than in men. On multivariate analysis in the total cohort, female sex was an independent predictor of overall complications (OR, 1.47; 95% CI, 1.26-1.71; p<0.001) and bleeding complications (OR, 1.74; 95% CI, 1.36-2.24; p<0.001) after adjustment for confounding variables. A similar trend was observed across the middle-aged group (≥55 and <75 years) and old age group (≥75 years). Women are at higher risk than men for post-procedural complications after PCI, regardless of age.

    ABSTRACT: The synergy between percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with Taxus and cardiac surgery (SYNTAX) score (SS) has prognostic utility for ischemic outcomes in patients undergoing PCI. Acute kidney injury (AKI) after PCI has been demonstrated to be associated with adverse outcomes. However, the relation between the SS and AKI after PCI has yet to be fully investigated. We therefore sought to study this relation in the formal angiographic substudy of the large Acute Catheterization and Urgent Intervention Triage Strategy trial. We stratified 2,268 patients who underwent PCI for non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes by postprocedural AKI status and by SS tertiles (SS <7, 7 to 12, and >12). We also assessed rates of in-hospital, 30-day, and 1-year adverse outcomes. A total of 226 patients (10%) developed AKI, and rates in the highest Acute Catheterization and Urgent Intervention Triage Strategy SS tertile (>12) were significantly greater than those in the intermediate (7 to 12) and lowest tertiles (<7; 13% vs 8.9% vs 7.7%, respectively, p = 0.002). By multivariable analysis, the SS was independently associated with AKI (odds ratio per 10 SS points 1.22, 95% confidence interval 1.04 to 1.43, p = 0.02. Rates of major adverse cardiovascular events and net adverse clinical events increased significantly by SS tertile and were more common in patients who developed AKI. Patients who developed AKI experienced higher in-hospital, 30-day, and 1-year rates of mortality. In this large study, the SS was independently associated with AKI after PCI for non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes, and patients who developed AKI experienced worse short-term and long-term outcomes.

    ABSTRACT: Transradial percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI [TRI]) does not involve catheter manipulation in the descending aorta, whereas transfemoral PCI (TFI) does. Therefore, the risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) after PCI might be influenced by vascular access site. We compared risks of AKI and nephropathy requiring dialysis (NRD) among patients treated with TRI and TFI. We included patients across 47 hospitals in Michigan. Primary end point was AKI (serum creatinine increase ≥0.5 mg/dL). Secondary end points were NRD and postprocedural bleeding. Odds ratios (OR) for study end points were calculated for the entire and propensity-matched population, reported as crude, and values adjusted for preprocedural calculated AKI risk. Between 2010 and 2012, a total of 82 225 PCI procedures were performed, of which 8915 were TRI. After adjustment, TRI was associated with a reduction in AKI (OR, 0.76, 95% confidence intervals [0.62-0.92]) and bleeding with a trend toward lower NRD risk. The propensity-matched population consisted of 8857 procedures per group. In this population, TRI was associated with lower adjusted odds of AKI (OR, 0.74; 95% confidence intervals [0.58-0.96]), and bleeding (OR, 0.47; 95% confidence intervals [0.36-0.63]), but no difference in NRD was observed. Although postprocedural bleeding was independently associated with AKI (OR, 2.86; 95% confidence intervals [1.75-4.66]) in the propensity-matched population, the lower odds of AKI was not mediated by a reduction in bleeding with TRI. Sensitivity analysis demonstrated that the observed association between access site and AKI could potentially be explained by a moderately strong unknown confounder. The risk of AKI was significantly lower after TRI compared with TFI. This finding needs to be evaluated in randomized controlled trials.
