Intravenous iodinated radiocontrast agents
labelled with gadolinium are used as contrast media in patients undergoing MRI scans.
However, among those with an identified culprit drug, nearly half were antibiotics, followed by radiocontrast agents
used during diagnostic imaging procedures and chemotherapeutics that are used in treatment of cancer.
, which have been used in common daily clinical practice, can cause severe vasculitic syndrome and acute renal failure and, LV may be confused with diabetic foot ulcer.
Anaphylactoid and adverse reactions to radiocontrast agents
Evaluation of the nitric oxide production in rat renal artery smooth muscle cells culture exposed to radiocontrast agents
He was advised to avoid the typical triggers for mast cell degranulation (which caused the hypotensive episodes and associated symptoms), including alcohol, heat, cold, exertion, emotional upset, narcotics, radiocontrast agents
, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, acetylsalicylic acid, seafood, Hymenoptera stings, anticholinergic agents, polymyxin B, surgery, and mechanical irritation of his urticaria pigmentosa rash (eg, massage).
Effects of saline, mannitol and furosemide on acute decreases in renal function induced by radiocontrast agents
This impaired function results from the use of potentially harmful radiocontrast agents
, a condition known as radiocontrast nephropathy (RCN).
In the kidney, for example, administration of FG-4539 and other FibroGen HIF-PH inhibitors protected kidney function from ischemia reperfusion injury(6,7) and nephrotoxic radiocontrast agents
4] may be seen in patients treated with amiodarone (64) or with iodinated radiocontrast agents
(eg, iopanoic acid and ipodate given orally for cholecystography).
RCN occurs when the kidneys of patients with renal insufficiency or diabetes are unable to process the radiocontrast agents
used during these procedures, resulting in impaired kidney function and increased morbidity and mortality.
