Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system blockade is associated with higher risk of contrast-induced acute kidney injury in patients with diabetes

Figure 1. Summary of study design, methods, and results. Propensity score matching (PSM) was conducted on 1310 ACEIs/ARBs patients and 930 controls from four medical centers, resulting in 704 patient pairs. After merging matched data from each center, 659 patient pairs were obtained. The conditional logistic model was used to evaluate the association between ACEIs/ARBs use and CIAKI incidence.
