Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is a common complication in patients with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The Mehran risk score was defined originally in elective PCI and may be predictive of CI-AKI. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the Zwolle score predicts CI-AKI in patients with acute STEMI undergoing primary PCI.
