Cystografin is indicated for retrograde cystourethrography.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Preparation Of The Patient
Appropriate preparation is desirable for optimal results.
A laxative the night before the examination and a low residue diet the day
before the procedure are recommended.
The dose for retrograde use in cystography and voiding
cystourethrography ranges from 25 to 300 mL depending on the age of the patient
and the degree of bladder irritability; amounts greater than 300 mL may be used
if the bladder capacity allows. Best results are obtained when the bladder is
filled with the contrast agent. If desired, the preparation may be diluted with
sterile water or sterile saline as indicated in the table below.
After sterile catheterization, the bladder should be
filled to capacity with Cystografin using a suitable sterile administration
set. Care should be taken to avoid using excessive pressure. The presence of
bladder discomfort or reflux and/or spontaneous voiding usually indicates that
the bladder is full.
The commonly employed radiographic techniques should be
used. A scout film is recommended before the contrast agent is administered.
