Myelography with iopamidol, a nonionic water-soluble contrast medium: incidence of complications.


A review of immediate and delayed side effects noted in a consecutive series of 1,138 myelograms made with Iopamidol in the Services of Neuroradiology of various hospitals and university clinics at Pavia, Perugia, Vicenza, and Parma (all in Italy). The contrast was administered by lumbar spinal route at iodine concentrations of 200, 300 and 370 mg/ml, in amounts varying from 5 to 20 ml depending on segments being examined and extant clinical indications. The incidence and characteristics of complications (headache, nausea, vomiting, evidence of radicular irritation, etc.) were assessed in relation to examination technics, segments of spine being explored, iodine concentrations, and amounts of contrast injected.
