ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a study that was conducted to examine how N-acetylcysteine can prevent contrast-medium-induced nephropathy in primary angioplasty. About 354 patients, who received primary angioplasty for ST-elevation myocardial infarction within 12 hours after onset of symptoms, were taken as subjects. In patients having primary angioplasty, N-acetylcysteine was said to reduce the incidence of contrast-medium-induced nephropathy.
