Epub 2008 Jun 20 Chapter 3 Antibiotics and Anticoagulation Luciane Piazza In the catheterization laboratory, antibiotics are used to prevent bacterial endocarditis. Despite advances in diagnosis, antimicrobial therapy, surgical techniques and the management of complications, infective endocarditis (IE) is still a serious problem with high rates of mortality and morbidity. Theoretically endocarditis can be prevented using prophylactic antibiotics. Therefore, since 1955, IE antibiotic prophylaxis strategies have been in place for patients with cardiac disease potentially at risk of IE following bacteraemia during an invasive procedure.
In the typical patient dose range related to diagnostic and interventional use of x-rays (0–50 mSv), the associated cancer risk cannot be deduced from epidemiological data owing to a lack of 5 Angiography: Radiation Exposure and Standard Projections 39 statistical power so risk estimates for late effects have been based on a linear no-threshold model extrapolated from high-dose data as obtained in the lifespan study of atomic bomb survivors that support the concept that no radiation doses, no matter how small, can be considered safe without a threshold safe dose.
They are monomers that dissolve in water but do not dissociate in solution. Hence, with fewer particles in solution, they are designated low-osmolar contrast media (LOCM). The most recent class of agents are dimers that consist of a molecule with two benzenes (again, each with 3 iodine atoms) that do not dissociate in water (nonionic). These compounds are called iso-osmolar contrast media (IOCM) (Fig. 1). The toxicity of CM decreases as osmolality approaches that of serum. HOCM have an osmolality of 1,570 mosm/kg H2O, while IOCM have an osmolality similar to serum at 290 mosm/ kg H2O.
