c. endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR)

2. If available please send the guidelines/policy by email.

3. When was this guideline last reviewed and/or revised?

4. What strategies does your institution use to manage patients at risk of CI-AKI?

5. Do you routinely involve a renal physician in the pre and post procedure management of patients at risk of CI-AKI who are having a contrast enhanced investigation or interventional procedure?

6. Do patients at risk of CI-AKI routinely have post procedure serum urea, creatinine, eGFR and electrolytes measured? If so, at what time post procedure does this happen?

Yours faithfully,
