Contrast Media in the Cardiovascular System

  • C. B. Higgins
Part of the Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology book series (HEP, volume 73)


This chapter is a review of current knowledge of the cardiovascular effects of contrast media, examining the literature on this subject over the past 1½ decades. In the previous encyclopedia on radiocontrast agents [1], Almen comprehensively reviewed the published information dealing with the cardiovascular effects of contrast media up to the year 1968. As in other areas of biomedical research the output of scientific papers and new concepts on this subject in the past decade has approached, and on some topics surpassed, the total output prior to this time.


Renal Blood Flow Coronary Blood Flow Coronary Arteriography Intracoronary Injection Meglumine Diatrizoate
