[Effect of contrast media products on the erythrocyte aggregation and deformability in vitro].

It has been suggested that contrast media could interfere with red blood cell aggregation, hyperosmolar media leading to an inhibition of red blood cell aggregation whereas non ionic products might induce a sludge phenomenon. We present an in vitro study accompanying two contrast media: 1) Ioxitalamate of sodium and meglumin (ionic, hyperosmolar). 2… CONTINUE READING
