Use of tolazoline enhanced superior mesenteric arteriography to improve opacification of a cecal vascular ectasia: A case report
- 26 Downloads
The use of vasodilators to enhance venous opacification during superior mesenteric arteriography is well established. This is a report on the use of intra-arterial tolazoline hydrochloride during angiography to improve opacification of a cecal vascular ectasia which was poorly demonstrated on an arteriogram performed without tolazoline.
