Aortography often is required to locate accurately and define the extent of occlusions of the aorta and its branches. This study was undertaken to determine the frequency and severity of the complications of translumbar aortography in the Barnes Hospital with a view toward devising methods of reducing their frequency. Technique Pentobarbital sodium, 0.09 gm., and atropine, 0.0004 gm., were administered as premedication. During 1954, a total of 26 aortograms were performed while the patients…

Translumbar aortography: a study of its safety and usefulness.
TLDR
Translumbar aortography, when performed under the proper indications and appropriate conditions, has a degree of safety equal to or greater than that of transfemoral catheter aortology, and its diagnostic reliability within its technical scope is high.
The renal arteries. An evaluation of roentgen methods of opacification.
TLDR
The interest lies simply in defining the limitations of the intravenous and translumbar needle arteriographie, particularly in the light of the ease and greater diagnostic value of the newer percutaneous method.
Visualization of the Renal Artery: A Comparison of Translumbar and Percutaneous Retrograde Catheter Approaches, Single‐Film and Seriographic Technics
TLDR
Comparison of the renal arteriograms obtained by these two methods demonstrates that the transfemoral catheter seriographic technic is a simpler and more reliable procedure and results in better visualization of the kidney artery.
Fatal nephropathy and adrenal necrosis after translumbar aortography.
TRANSLUMBAR aortography has become an important diagnostic procedure in the study of occlusive disease of the lower aorta. Dos Santos,1 a Portuguese urologist, introduced the method clinically in 1...
Hypertension secondary to aneurysm of the renal artery: report of a case of long duration cured by nephrectomy.
TLDR
Interest in the renal origin of hypertension has increased greatly, in part because hypertension occurring in association with unilateral renal disease is associated with high blood pressure, writes Goldblatt.

The fact that this patient came to an early autopsy enabled the report of a similar case having the serious sequelae of transverse myelitis and paraplegia following direct abdominal aortography to be more fully evaluated.
Abdominal aortography with special reference to its complications.
TLDR
Reynaldo dos Santos and collaborators A. C. Lamas and J. P. Caldas presented their experiences in abdominal aortography (ao) in 1929, and a few authors have again adopted the method, and reported excellent results.

TLDR
The importance of angiography is stressed, particularly before one elects and selects surgical intervention as the treatment of choice, and various lesions of the vascular system are discussed from a diagnostic and prognostic standpoint, their delineation by Angiography, and the use of this method in surgery.

This report is that of a study made on a number of human spinal cords by means of postmortem injection or by the benzidine stain, which found an interesting fact about the circulation of the spinal cord.
