had been used to opacify the bile and the pancreatic duct.
The contrast agents routinely used were 75% urograffin
or lopamidol (iopamiro, lek pomidal) or lohexol (Omnipaque).
All patients were given full oral bowel preparation with oral contrast of diluted 20 ml gastograffin / urograffin
with 1.5 liter of water.
Then the patients were turned to prone position with adequate padding, retrograde pyelography was done with UROGRAFFIN
1:2 dilution with normal saline (10ml of urograffin
with 20ml normal saline).
was used as contrast agent during the procedure.
We describe a new method of decompression of sigmoid volvulus using a Urograffin
and saline enema with additional extra-abdominal manual massage.
Opacification of the digestive tract was achieved with oral administration of 1000ml of Urograffin
suspension (370mg I/ml) administered four hours before the scan.
Procedure for Hysterosalpingography: HSG was performed using a water soluble contrast medium (76% urograffin
60% Sodium and Meglumine salts of Urograffin
contrast was used in quantities varying with the body weight.
The ionic contrast medium Urograffin
(A mixture of salts of diatrizoic acid) was used to opacify the bile and the pancreatic duct.
60 (Diatrizoate meglumine, Diatrizoate sodium) served as the radiographic contrast medium in HSG.
