  • Editorial - Nicorandil for CIN Prevention — A Hope or Hype?

    Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) or contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is a common but potentially serious complication leading to in-hospital mortality. The presentation can be acute or acute on chronic, if the patient has pre-existing chronic kidney disease (CKD).
