The use of pharmaceutical strategies to prevent contrast-induced acute kidney injury continues to be an unresolved matter. In this manuscript the authors describe their findings of a systematic review with a meta-analysis on the prevention of this type of injury with ascorbic acid. They conclude that ascorbic acid appears to be nephro-protective against contrast-induced acute kidney injury.
