ACIST CVi®: Reference 06

Automated contrast injection in contemporary practice during cardiac catheterization and PCI: Effects on contrast-induced nephropathy. Call J, Sacrinty M, Applegate R, et al. Journal of Invasive Cardiology 2006;18(10):469-474.

Retrospective, observational study evaluating N=2,175 patients from 2002-04 (n=1798 patients using traditional hand injection techniques from Apr 2002 – Jan 2004 and n=377 patients using ACIST Contrast Delivery System from Jan–Nov 2004). Shows that use of lower volumes of contrast media while using the ACIST Contrast Delivery System is associated with a reduced relative risk of Contrast Induced Nephropathy (CIN) when compared to traditional hand injection techniques.
