Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) has been linked to morbidity and mortality, especially in high-risk patients whose kidney function is compromised. Recently, many studies have been conducted to search for more novel, preventative methods of decreasing CI-AKI. Through a detailed analysis of recent studies, this article discusses recommendations for hydration, N-acetylcysteine, and statin therapy in relation to the prophylactic management of CI-AKI in high-risk patients.
