Sequelae of intrinsic foreign-body contamination during selective renal angiography in rabbits

Radiology. 1980 Feb;134(2):321-6. doi: 10.1148/radiology.134.2.7352209.


The significance of foreign-body contamination of contrast media, flushing solutions, and angiographic equipment was investigated by selective renal angiography in 32 rabbits. Infarction caused by foreign bodies introduced by the angiographic procedure was frequently demonstrated. As a particulate matter is also injected during human angiography, its effects should be carefully sought.
