Positioning of patients after metrizamide lumbar myelography.

Abstract

This prospective study of 90 patients after lumbar metrizamide myelography indicates that the semiupright position at 45 degrees in bed or early ambulation reduces postprocedure vomiting but does not reduce the frequency of headache. Ambulatory patients have less frequent nausea than patients kept in bed.
