Within the framework of a clinical study, subjective and objective data were compiled on the low-osmolar contrast medium ioxaglinic acid. In 213 angiographies performed on 134 patients in the Department of Radiology I of the Ulm University Clinic from October 1979 to February 1980, it was established that unfavourable subjective symptoms were missing to a major extent. Hence, we believe that it is not justified to subject the patients to the additional stress of general narcosis when performing peripheral and cerebral angiographies. In more than 50% of the patients, the contrast medium produced either an increase or a drop in blood pressure; a state of collapse requiring treatment never occurred in any of the patients.
