Özet

Background/aim: The purpose of this study is to find the frequency of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) and to show the risk factors in the development of CIN and the diagnostic utility of serum cystatin C (CysC) and serum and urine neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) during childhood following cardiac angiography.
