  • Contrast Media Extravasation in CT and MRI - A Literature Review and Strategies for Therapy. [Journal Article]
  • ROFORofo 2018 Jun 18
  • Mandlik V, Prantl L, Schreyer AG
  • CONCLUSIONS:  After detailed literature review, we suggest early (plastic) surgical consultation when non-ionic, low-osmolar contrast medium extravasation is about 150 cc or more. In case of extravasation less than 150 cc but in presence of additional symptoms such as impaired perfusion or altered sensibility, the (plastic) surgeon should also be consulted instantly. We do not recommend any invasive first line therapy when contrast media extravasation is less than 150 cc and the patient presents no additional symptoms, besides swelling and local pain. Nevertheless continuous monitoring and accurate conservative management such as active cooling and elevation, splinting of the affected extremity are mandatory as early detection of critical symptoms helps to initiate prompt surgical intervention and avoid sequelae.  · Morbidity after contrast media extravasation is extremely rare.. · Predicting sequelae after contrast extravasation is difficult at first sight.. · Treatments such as hyaluronidase injection, suction/aspiration, squeeze technique have been described.. · Surgical consultation is recommended for extravasation > 150 cc or when additional symptoms occur..
