Coronary angiography should be offered to all patients regardless of CKD stage, clinicians say

Invasive management of non-ST elevation MI in patients with chronic kidney disease leads to better survival outcomes than conservative treatment, new research shows.

Those offered invasive therapy also had “minimal” increased risk of in-hospital acute kidney injury requiring dialysis and major bleeding, according to US researchers.
