ABSTRACT
In 101 patients, 257 injections of metrizoate contrast medium were made without any serious side effect. The low viscosity (7.06 centipoise) and relatively high iodine concentration (44 per cent) allowed rapid injection and adequate film detail for diagnosis. The majority of the patients studied had congenital heart disease, with rheumatic valvular lesions and coronary artery disease following in frequency. The usual transient tachycardia and sensation of warmth were present in all cases. Electrocardiographic changes were present in one patient after selective right coronary artery arteriogram, consisting of T wave inversion lasting several seconds.
