The influence on albuminuria following nephroangiography was investigated after addition of Ca2+ to the non-ionic contrast medium metrizamide (Amipaque) in the rat and after addition of Ca2+ or Ca2+ and Mg2+ to the experimental non-ionic contrast medium C 29 in the dog. When Ca2+ or CA2+ and Mg2+ were added to metrizamide or C29 in concentrations two to three times th plasma level no influence occurred. Higher concentrations of Ca2+ (10-25 mmol/l) in the metrizamide or C29 solutions resulted in…

Renal Function following Nephroangiography with Metrizamide and Iohexol
The non-ionic ratio 3.0 contrast media metrizamide and iohexol used in high-dose unilateral nephroangiography in dogs produce homogeneous nephrograms and no marked effects on renal blood flow,
Nephrotoxicity of Ionic and Non-Ionic Contrast Media in Aorto-Femoral Angiography
It is recommended that at least patients with impaired renal function should be examined with the non-ionic contrast medium iohexol to minimize the danger of further damage to the kidneys and a possible renal failure.
Contrast media-induced nephropathy following diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac catheterization.
Low-osmolar contrast media still represent the third main cause of nosocomialacquired acute renal failure (ARF) (10% of cases), substantially increasing hospitalization period, care costs and in-hospital morbi-mortality.
Intravenous Injection of Ioxilan, Iohexol and Diatrizoate
It is concluded that both high osmolar ionic and low Osmolar non-ionic contrast media may cause temporary glomerular and tubular dysfunction in rats and the kidney is affected most by diatrizoate, less by iohexol, and least by ioxilan.
Urographic Contrast Media and Methods of Investigative Uroradiology
Urographic contrast media (CM) are used to enhance the differences between the urinary tract structures and the surrounding tissues to reveal morphological details of diagnostic importance on the roentgenograms.
Radiologic contrast media
The Thorotrast saga provides several new examples of late malignancy as a continuing lesson on the misguided use of this substance.
Effects of Contrast Media on Aortic Endothelium
Injury to the vascular endothelium caused by contrast media.has been considered to be one possible mechanism in the development of toxic effects, occurring both in animal experiments and clinical
Proteinuria following Nephroangiography
Proteinuria, often massive, occurs in a high frequency following nephroangiography in man and in the dog with the ionic contrast media metrizoate and diatrizoate and the non-ionic metrizamide (TEJLER


Proteinuria following Nephroangiography
Major increases of urinary albumin were common following nephroangiography in dogs using Urografin or Isopaque Cerebral as contrast medium and following injection of contrast medium albuminuria commenced within a few minutes; normalization occurred within 2 days.
Proteinuria following Nephroangiography
Following nephroangiography with an ionic contrast medium (metrizoate) proteinuria occurred in 25 of 28 patients, reaching its maximum with 1/2 to 24 hours. It fell to preangiographic values within 6
Proteinuria following Nephroangiography
The degree of albuminuria following hephroangiography with the ionic contrast medium Urografin, the non-ionic Amipaque and a recently synthesized non-ionic contrast medium with the code name C 29 was
Proteinuria following Nephroangiography
Significantly less albuminuria was caused by renal artery injections of a corresponding volume of a sodium chloride solution of equal osmolality or intravenous injections of twice that volume of Urografin 76%.
Proteinuria following renal arteriography. Report of two cases.
Two patients reacting with transitory, massive proteinuria after diagnostic renal arteriography with a commonly used non-ionic contrast medium, metrizoate, are described and it is suggested that intratubular precipitation of proteins, obstructing urinary flow, might be one factor in the development of a patient's renal failure.
The blood-brain barrier: effects of nonionic contrast media with and without addition of Ca2+ and Mg2+.

Interest was focused on a new, experimental, nonionic medium (C-29) and possible effects resulting from the addition of Ca2+ and Mg2+ to nonionic contrast media, which seemed to stabilize the blood-brain barrier.
Exacerbation of diabetic renal failure following intravenous pyelography.
It is indicated that intravenous pyelography is dangerous in patients with juvenile onset diabetes who have a creatinine level of more than 5 mg/100 ml, and particularly at risk seem to be patients with early onset diabetes and those patients with severe renal failure.
Angiographically induced renal failure and its radiographic detection.
A recently performed prospective random study of 100 patients undergoing angiography demonstrated a 10% incidence of renal failure, and the likelihood of postangiographic renal failure was unrelated to the quantity of contrast as measured either by total volume or per kilogram body weight.
Renal function after high-dose urography in patients with chronic renal insufficiency.
Renal function was assessed by frequent recordings of Ccr and serum creatinine in 22 patients with chronic renal failure before and after high-dose urography and possible causes of the deleterious effects of the contrast media on the kidneys are discussed.
Acute renal failure due to radio-contrast agents.
Observations demonstrate the not infrequent occurrence of severe oliguric renal failure following radio-contrast study in patients with preexisting renal disease.
