Iohexol Injection

Iohexol oralis one of the different types of contrast media. Compared with a traditional ionic Contrast Media, Iohexol Injection has an excellent molecular structure and it can greatly improve user safety and significantly reduce adverse reactions. The iodinated contrast agent has excellent clinical feedback and good imaging results. In 1998, Iohexol Injection was launched as Beilu's 1st iodinated Contrast Media.

Indications of Iohexol Injection

The omnipaque iohexol is an X-ray contrast agent. It can be used for angiocardiography, arteriography, urography, enhanced CT examination inclduing cervical, thoracic and lumbar myelography, CT cisternography following intrathecal injection (i.e., an injection into the subarachnoid space); arthrography, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), herniography or fistulography, hysterosalpingography, sialography, percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTC), sinography, gastroenterography, T-tube angiography, etc.

Precautions of Iohexol Injection

General precautions for the use of nonionic-monomer contrast agent:

  1. iohexol side effectsof nonionic contrast agents on the coagulation system is lighter than that of ionic contrast agents. During angiography, great care should be taken in the intravascular technical procedures, and the catheter should be irrigated with heparinized saline from time to time to reduce the thrombosis and embolism related to the technical procedures.

Identify patients with high-risk factors.

Ensure patients are appropriately hydrated and, if necessary, the infusion may be maintained intravenously prior to examination until the contrast agent is cleared from the kidneys.

Avoid any nephrotoxic agent, oral gallbladder contrast agent, surgery for arterial occlusion, renal angioplasty or other major surgeries that increase the renal burden until the contrast agent is cleared.

Repeat radiographic testing is delayed until renal function returned to the pre-examination level.

To prevent lactic acidosis, the level of serum creatinine must be determined before intravascular injection of iodinated contrast agent into diabetic patients taking metformin. For patients with abnormal serum creatinine/renal function, metformin must be discontinued and the examinations with contrast agent must be postponed until after 48 hours of discontinuation. Metformin should be reused only after renal function and serum creatinine level are constant. In some emergency cases of patients with abnormal or unknown renal function, the physician must assess both advantages and disadvantages of using contrast agent and take precautions, such as discontinuation of metformin, adequate hydration of patients, testing of renal functions, and careful observation of symptoms of lactic acidosis.

There is a potential risk of transient hepatic dysfunction. Special attention should be paid to patients with serious hepatic and renal insufficiency due to significantly longer time to clear contrast agent. Hemodialysis patients may receive the examinations with contrast agents. Immediate hemodialysis is not necessary after the injection of contrast agent because there is no evidence showing that hemodialysis can protect patients with renal impairment from contrast-induced nephropathy.

Iodinated contrast agents may exacerbate symptoms of myasthenia gravis. Patients with pheochromocytoma should be treated with α-blockers to prevent hypertensive crisis in interventional procedures. Special attention should also be paid to patients with hyperthyroidism. Patients with multinodular goitre may develop hyperthyroidism after using iodinated contrast agents. The possibility of transient hypothyroidism in preterm infants after using contrast agents should be clearly recognized.

Contrast media extravasation (CME) occasionally causes localized pain or oedema, which gradually subsides without sequelae. However, inflammation and even tissue necrosis may occasionally occur. Routine treatment is to elevate the affected limb and cold-compress at local sites. Surgical decompression is required in case of compartment syndrome.

Patients should be observed for at least 30 minutes after the use of the contrast agent because most serious adverse reactions occur during this period. However, there is still the possibility of a delayed response.

After myelography, patients should rest for 1 h with 20°-raised head and chest. Patients can carefully get out of bed and walk without bending over. If patients are still in bed, keep their head and chest raised for 6 hours. Patients with low seizure thresholds should be closely monitored during this period, and outpatients should not stay alone for the first 24 hours.

Do not drive a vehicle or operate a machine within 24 hours after intraspinal injection.
