A comparison of Hexabrix and Renografin-60 in knee arthrography.
(Clinical Trial;Journal Article)
Forty patients were randomized in a double-blind study to compare the safety and diagnostic quality of Hexabrix vs. Renografin-60 without epinephrine in knee arthrography. Hexabrix is a monoacidic dimer of meglumine and sodium salts of ioxaglic acid with a lower osmolality than conventional contrast agents of similar concentration (32% iodine). Initial films were of equally high diagnostic quality for both groups, but delayed films at 20 and 30 min significantly favored Hexabrix for diagnostic quality. Hexabrix proved to be a safe and effective contrast agent for knee arthrography.
