In the first part of the study we examined the accuracy of femoral anteversion (AV) determined by fluoroscopy, simulating a method used in closed intramedullary femoral nailing. Twenty cadaveric femora were used. The condyles and posterior trochanteric area were resting on a horizontal table. The proximal femur was imaged using a C-arm image intensifier(More)
Iodixanol (Visipaque) 320 mg I/ml, a non-ionic, dimeric, isotonic contrast medium, was compared to ioxaglate (Hexabrix) 320 mg I/ml in cardioangiography. One hundred and two patients with normal renal function were included in the study. The objectives were to evaluate safety, tolerability, radiographic efficacy and effects on renal function. Adverse(More)
The purpose of the present phase IV multicentre trial was to evaluate general patient tolerance to Omnipaque 350 mgI/ml (iohexol) supplied in polypropylene containers compared to that of the same product supplied in routinely used glass vials, with emphasis on allergy-like adverse events. Polypropylene is a pure plastic material with practically no(More)
In 22 individuals (mean age 52 years) the ultrasonographic images of arteries defined as normal by arteriography were studied and related to the age and medical history of the patients. The series was divided into 2 groups: patients with clinical manifestation of atherosclerosis and patients without a history of arterial disease. The study included 6 young(More)

916 (63%) of 1,452 coronary angiographies performed at the University Hospital in Trondheim from 1988 to 1990 were done policlinically. The study shows that coronary angiography can be carried out safely on an outpatient basis, and that more than 50% of all patients admitted for a coronary angiography can be examined in this way.
