Abstract

Iohexol 350 mg I/ml (Omnipaque) was compared with the routine contrast medium meglumine, Na-Ca-metrizoate 370 mg I/ml (Isopaque Coronar) in coronary angiography in 30 patients. A randomized, double blind, crossover design was employed. Angiographic image quality, ECG, heart rate, aortic blood pressure and adverse reactions were recorded. Excellent image quality was obtained with both media. Except for one single event of hypotension, only few and minor changes in the parameters measured were recorded. No distinct difference between the two media was found. Iohexol seems to be suitable for selective coronary angiography.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
