Abstract

Objectives: The iso-osmolar contrast agent iodixanol may be associated with fewer contrast-induced acute kidney injuries when compared with low-osmolar contrast agents. The aim of this study was to compare iodixanol and iopamidol in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) who were undergoing coronary angiography.
