I’m interested in seeing if any of my colleagues at other facilities have been experiencing an increase in adverse events associated with the use of IV contrast in neurointerventional endovascular procedures.
To summarize briefly, we have recently observed an increase in events where these patients have experienced symptoms of stroke, seizure and encephalopathy post neurointerventional procedures with subsequent recovery. One common feature among these patients is the unexpected presence of IV contrast in the brain post procedure.
I would like to know if other facilities have experienced similar events and if you’ve been able to identify any common links between cases such as specific contrast agent(s) or any other factors.
Thank you in advance.
