  1. Use of a remotely controlled mechanical pump for coronary arteriography : a study of radiation exposure and quality implications.

    Article - En anglais

    Background-Exposure to radiation is a hazard of invasive cardiology.

    To minimise the risk it is essential to keep the doses received as low as possible.

    Aim-To assess the effect on cardiologist radiation exposure and the quality of coronary artery opacification of the use of a remotely controlled mechanical pump for coronary arteriography.

    A secondary aim was to assess any disadvantages and safety.

    Methods-319 patients were randomised to have coronary arteriography carried out with contrast injected either by hand or by a remotely controlled mechanical pump.

    Six cardiologists participated: two catheter laboratories were used and both brachial and femoral approaches were included.
