To highlight potential adverse effects of contrast agents. •! To produce guidelines on the safe use of contrast media in different clinical Version has until. “Contrast agents are much less nephrotoxic than previously thought”, said Aart van der the current ESUR Contrast Media Safety Committee (CMSC) guideline. It is a great honor for the Contrast Media Safety Committee of the European So- ciety of Urogenital Radiology (ESUR) to present version of its Contrast Media 7. 1. AN OVERVIEW. This overview summarizes some of the most important.

Patients undergoing therapy with radioactive iodine should not have received iodine-based contrast media for at least two months before treatment. There is no additional AKI risk in patients with solitary kidneys, kidney transplants, multiple myeloma or monoclonal gammopathy. We started in and we have on average updated the booklet om 2 to 3 years. Efficient practice may involve giving fersion and gadolinium-based contrast agents for enhanced CT and MR on the same day.
Estimated to be 0. Gadolinium-based contrast agents B.
ESUR guidelines on Contrast Media – B. Renal adverse reactions
Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. Diagnostic results can be achieved with lower doses than extracellular Gd-CM. Appropriate H1-antihistamine intramuscularly or intravenously should be given. Appropriate H1-antihistamine intramuscularly or intravenously should be considered. Use low or iso-osmolar contrast media.
In pediatric patients give 0. Gadolinium-based contrast agents attenuate X-rays well and may be misinterpreted on CT when they have been excreted into the urinary tract. Effect of iodinated contrast media on thyroid function in adults. All other topics for which the Committee has prepared guidelines, including: After the examination B.
The clinically important adverse effect of iodine-based contrast media on blood and endothelium is thrombosis. Preparation Before intravenous iodine- or gadolinium-based contrast medium: All contrast media have anticoagulant properties, especially ionic agents.
Be aware of the patients drug history. Prevention of generalized reactions to contrast media: Drug prophylaxis is generally not recommended.
How long should there guideline between two gadolinium-based contrast agent injections for routine examinations? Iodine-based contrast medium Correlation of time of the contrast medium injection with the hemodialysis session is unnecessary. Already have an account? Isotope imaging of the thyroid should be avoided for two months after iodine-based contrast medium injection.
Contrast media :
Over the years, more than meddia, copies of the booklet have been printed and it has been translated into many languages. Avoid agents which have shown cross-reactivity on skin testing.
Gadolinium-based contrast medium Hemodialysis to remove the contrast medium is unnecessary for iodine-based contrast medium, but for gadolinium- based contrast medium. Keep a proper record of the contrast medium injection time, dose, name.
ESUR Guidelines on Contrast Media – European Society of Urogenital Radiology
Drugs and interventional devices that decrease the risk of thromboembolic complications during interventional procedures minimize the importance of the effects of contrast media. No pharmacological prophylaxis with renal vasodilators, receptor antagonists of endogenous vasoactive mediators or cytoprotective drugs has yet been shown to offer consistent protection against contrast induced nephropathy. The Committee and authors of the Iodine-based contrast medium Hemodialysis to remove the contrast medium is unnecessary for iodine-based contrast medium, but for gadolinium- based contrast medium.
However, there is no evidence that hemodialysis protects patients with impaired renal function from post contrast acute kidney injury or nephrogenic systemic fibrosis. Gadolinium-based contrast media should only be used if the indication is vital and then only intermediate or low risk agents should be used. History of pulmonary hypertension. All iodine and gadolinium-based contrast media can be removed by hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.
Symptomatic and similar to the management of other drug-induced skin reactions e. Late adverse reactions to intravascular iodinated contrast media.
