Impact of point-of-care pre-procedure creatinine and eGFR testing in patients with ST segment elevation myocardial infarction undergoing primary PCI: The pilot STATCREAT study

Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is a recognised complication during primary PCI that affects short and long term prognosis. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of point-of-care (POC) pre-PPCI creatinine and eGFR testing in STEMI patients. Methods 160 STEMI patients (STATCREAT group) with pre-procedure POC testing of Cr and eGFR were compared with 294 consecutive retrospective STEMI patients (control group). Patients were further divided into subjects with or without pre-existing CKD. Results The incidence of CI-AKI in the whole population was 14.5% and not different between the two overall groups. For patients with pre-procedure CKD, contrast dose was significantly reduced in the STATCREAT group (124.6ml vs. 152.3ml, p =0.015). The incidence of CI-AKI was 5.9% (n =2) in the STATCREAT group compared with 17.9% (n =10) in the control group (p =0.12). There was no difference in the number of lesions treated (1.118 vs. 1.196, p =0.643) or stents used (1.176 vs. 1.250, p =0.78). For non-CKD patients, there was no significant difference in contrast dose (172.4ml vs. 158.4ml, p =0.067), CI-AKI incidence (16.7% vs. 13.4%, p =0.4), treated lesions (1.167 vs. 1.164, p =1.0) or stents used (1.214 vs. 1.168, p =0.611) between the two groups. Conclusions Pre-PPCI point-of-care renal function testing did not reduce the incidence of CI-AKI in the overall group of STEMI patients. In patients with CKD, contrast dose was significantly reduced, but a numerical reduction in CI-AKI was not found to be statistically significant. No significant differences were found in the non-CKD group.
