The article focuses on the randomized controlled trial (RCT) investigating if prophylactic hemodialysis after coronary angiography prevents contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) in patients with advanced renal failure. The trial, conducted with 90 patients (20 years of age) found out that in patients with advanced renal failure, prophylactic hemodialysis after coronary angiography maintained creatinine clearance and reduced risk for permanent renal damage.
