Background: The role of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor and angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) in the pathophysiology of contrast-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) is controversial, and the available literature is contradictory. Study Design: A retrospective propensity score-matched study to analyze the effect of ACE-inhibitor/ARB therapy on the development of contrast-induced AKI. Setting & Participants: Using propensity score matching, 1,322 ACE-inhibitor/ARB recipients and nonrecipients were paired for analysis from 5,299 patients and fulfilled the inclusion criteria among 11,447 patients receiving coronary angiography (CAG) or percutaneous coronary intervention. Predictors: ACE-inhibitor/ARB use based on prescription and risk factors for contrast-induced AKI. Outcomes: The incidence of contrast-induced AKI defined by AKI Network (AKIN) criteria: an absolute increase in serum creatinine levels
