    Retinal optical coherence tomography angiography as a biomarker of acute kidney injury after acute coronary syndrome

    Background Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is frequent and associated with long-term renal impairment and mortality. Retinal vessel density (RVD) measured by OCT-Angiography could reflect the global cardiovascular burden of ACS patients and thus provide a fast and non-invasive assessment of the systemic microcirculation , that may be involved in CIN occurrence. Methods Between October 2016 and March 2017, 452 ACS patients were admitted in our coronary care unit . Retinal OCT-A was performed within two days after PCI. Patients were divided in two groups, according to Acute kidney injury (AKI) occurrence (KDIGO criteria ...
