- Evaluation of Sodium Bicarbonate to Reduce Contrast-Induced Nephropathy (CIN) in Subjects with Advanced Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) who are Undergoing Angiography [BOSS TRIAL]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate two different solutions to see which works better in preventing kidney disease (nephropathy) and kidney failure that occurs in some patients after completing the contrast procedure. In this study, the participant will...
- A Clinical Evaluation of the Medtronic Endeavor Resolute Zotarolimus-Eluting Coronary Stent System in the Treatment of De Novo Lesions in Native Coronary Arteries with a Reference Vessel Diameter of 2.25 mm to 4.2 mm
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if the new Endeavor Resolute stent using a new polymer is safe and how effective the drug-eluting stent is in reducing the renarrowing in coronary arteries over time. Patients enrolled in the study will be treated with stents appropriat...
- RENALGUARD: A Study to Evaluate RenalGuard™ System Safety and Efficacy when Compared with Standard Care in the Prevention of Contrast Induced Nephropathy in the Setting of a Catheterization Laboratory
The purpose of this study is to determine if a new treatment, called induced diuresis (making the kidneys produce more urine than usual) with matched hydration, (fluid replacement) is a safe and potentially effective way to protect patients' kidneys during their catheterizatio...
