Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is a common condition that is associated with short- and, likely, long-term adverse outcomes. Although periprocedural intravenous hydration is the simplest and most widely used technique to prevent CIN, the limited ability of this approach to mitigate the CIN risk in high-risk populations has provided an impetus to develop new preventive strategies. A range of potentially useful device-based approaches offers new preventive techniques. Well-designed and adequately powered randomized studies of these device-based therapies are urgently needed to determine the expanding role they will play in future clinical practice.
