Acute #Kidney Injury Among Older Patients Undergoing Coronary #Angiography for Acute Myocardial Infarction: The SILVER-AMI Study

..Comorbid diseases and aging-related conditions were both more common among individuals experiencing acute kidney injury. However, after multivariable adjustment, no aging-related conditions were retained. There were 11 risk factors in the final model; the strongest were heart failure on presentation (odds ratio [OR] 1.91; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.41-2.59), body mass index [BMI] >30 (vs BMI 18-25: OR 1.75; 95% CI, 1.27-2.42), and nonwhite race (OR 1.65; 95% CI, 1.16-2.33). The final model achieved an area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of 0.72 and was well calibrated (Hosmer-Lemeshow P = .50). Acute kidney injury was independently associated with 6-month mortality (OR 1.98; 95% CI, 1.36-2.88) but not readmission (OR 1.26; 95% CI, 0.98-1.61).

Acute kidney injury is common among older adults with acute myocardial infarction undergoing coronary angiography. Predictors largely mirrored those in previous studies of younger individuals, which suggests that geriatric conditions mediate their influence through other risk factors
