abstract

  • For patients with an eGFR lower than 15 mL/min, hemodialysis helped to prevent NSF. For patients with an eGFR lower than 30 mL/min who received a high dose of GBCA, acute renal failure, delayed hemodialysis after contrast agent injection, proinflammatory events, and hyperphosphatemia were associated with increased risk of NSF.
