- REDUCED IOPROMIDE ELIMINATION IN HEMODIALYSIS WITH CUPROPHAN MEMBRANES. Matzkies, F. K.; Reinecke, H.; Tombach, B.; Koeneke, J.; Hohage, H.; Kisters, K.; Schaefer, R. M. // Acta Radiologica;Nov2000, Vol. 41 Issue 6, p671
AbstractPurpose: To evaluate the influence of different membrane materials on the efficiency of iopromide elimination. Material and Methods: Twenty stable patients with chronic renal failure after coronary angiography were investigated for contrast medium elimination during hemodialysis directly...
- Contrast-induced nephropathy: a review of literature. Sani, Roya Narenji; Eshraghi, Ali; Farokhnejad, Somayeh // Reviews in Clinical Medicine;Autumn2015, Vol. 2 Issue 4, p208
Today, radiological procedures using intravascular iodinated contrast media are being widely used for the diagnoses and treatment of various diseases, which highlight one of the main etiologies of contrast-induced nephropathy and hospital-acquired renal failure. Contrast-induced nephropathy...
- Mezzi di contrasto in radiologia urologica. Foschi, N.; Totaro, A.; Brescia, A.; Gulino, G.; Bassi, P. F. // Urologia;2009, Vol. 76 Issue 1, p10
BACKGROUND. Contrast media are widely used in urogenital radiology. The ideal contrast agent should be totally inert, causing no interactions with organism, and with a rapid and complete excretion. Adverse reactions could occur after using any type of contrast media. Contrast enhanced procedures...
- Gadolinium-based contrast agents and nephrogenic systemic fibrosis: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Rajender Agarwal; Steven M. Brunelli; Kendal Williams; Matthew D. Mitchell; Harold I. Feldman; Craig A. Umscheid // Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation;Mar2009, Vol. 24 Issue 3, p856
Background. In the past decade, more than 200 cases of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) have been identified, primarily among patients with advanced kidney disease. Multiple studies have suggested an association between gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) and NSF. We performed a...
- Use of positive oral contrast agents in abdominopelvic computed tomography for blunt abdominal injury: meta-analysis and systematic review. Lee, Chau; Haaland, Benjamin; Earnest, Arul; Tan, Cher // European Radiology;Sep2013, Vol. 23 Issue 9, p2513
Objectives: To determine whether positive oral contrast agents improve accuracy of abdominopelvic CT compared with no, neutral or negative oral contrast agent. Methods: Literature was searched for studies evaluating the diagnostic performance of abdominopelvic CT with positive oral contrast...
- The contrast media debate. Tan, K.M. // Physician Executive;Jun1995, Vol. 21 Issue 6, p43
Focuses on the debate over the use of low-osmolar contrast media (LOCM) instead of ionic or high-osmolar contrast media (HOCM) in radiology. Economic consequences due to cost differential; Rise in the use of LOCM in hospitals; Efforts of some hospitals to limit the use of LOCM to certain...
