The tissue reaction of seven contrast agents--pure barium sulphate, Micropaque, Hytrast, Dionosil, Gastrografin, Amipaque and Hexabrix-was evaluated on the mediastinum of rats. This work was undertaken to define the most suitable and safe contrast agent for use in the upper gastrointestinal tract in cases where leakage outside the gut into the mediastinum, pleura or peritoneal cavity may be suspected and aspiration may be an accompanying risk. Keeping in mind the danger of aspiration, Hexabrix and Amipaque appear to be the safest contrast media for the mediastinum.
