Abstract

In patients with renal insufficiency or hypersensitivity to iodinated contrast material, carbon dioxide gas (CO2) is generally considered a safe alternative contrast media for digital subtraction angiography. However, we herein report a previously undescribed fatal complication of CO2 angiography in a patient with acute renal dysfunction and congestive heart failure. The possible pathogenetic mechanisms of this complication are discussed.
