[Spinal irritation after myelography with Amipaque in patients with kyphoscoliosis (author's transl)].

Abstract

Two patients with severe kyphoscoliosis developed marked spinal irritation following myelography with the new non-ionising contrast medium Amipaque. The authors raise the possibility that the spinal deformity may result in reduced flow of cerebro-spinal fluid; this may prolong the contact of the contrast medium with the (previously damaged?) spinal cord. Patients with this type of spinal deformity require particularly stringent indications for the performance of myelography, even when using Amipaque.
