Therapies and Procedures

1. Catheters
03/01/2014 - " female pigs were used to evaluate the contrast media extravasation detection system, using a 20-gauge intravenous catheter, when injected at a rate of 1 mL/s into 4 different locations just under the skin in the thigh section. "
03/01/2005 - "These patients were prospectively analyzed for contrast media extravasation, its relation to injection rate, cannula insertion and gauge and its complications. "
05/01/2000 - "Also, extravasation of contrast media was identified by angiography via the reservoir catheter. "
12/01/1998 - "To detect extravasation of contrast media during mechanical power injection at dynamic computed tomography, a 5 x 8-cm pliable adhesive patch was applied to the skin over the intravenous cannula and connected to the power injector with a cable to monitor electrical skin impedance. "
10/01/2011 - "The use of totally implantable venous access devices in radiology may be associated with complications such as occlusion of the system (because of the high density of some contrast), infection (if the port is not handled in aseptic conditions, using proper barrier protections), and mechanical complications due to the high-pressure administration of contrast by automatic injectors (so-called power injector), including extravasation of contrast media into the soft tissues, subintimal venous or myocardial injection, or serious damage to the device itself (breakage of the external connections, dislocation of the non-coring needle, or breakage of the catheter).
