PMID:  3513109     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Intraarterial digital subtraction angiography (IA-DSA) was performed in 80 pediatric patients. Forty-four underwent arterial injections with digital filming techniques. Of the 130 injections, DSA imaging was good or excellent in 121, often allowing resolution of vessels 1 mm in size. Thirty-six of the 80 patients underwent cardiac evaluation with intra-cardiac injections. Improved contrast resolution with IA-DSA allowed the use of smaller catheters (3-4F) and smaller amounts of contrast material. Immediate availability of subtracted images (no film processing delay) resulted in shorter total procedure time. Outpatient studies are possible. IA-DSA provides several notable advantages for the pediatric patient.
