Special warnings and precautions for use
Special precautions for use of non-ionic monomeric contrast media in general
A positive history of allergy, asthma, or untoward reactions to iodinated contrast
media indicates a need for special caution. Premedication with corticosteroids or
histamine H1 and H2 antagonists might be considered in these cases.
The risk of serious reactions in connection with use of Omnipaque is regarded as
minor. However, iodinated contrast media may provoke serious, life-threatening, fatal
anaphylactic/anaphylactoid reactions or other manifestations of hypersensitivity. A
course of action should therefore be planned in advance, with necessary drugs and
equipment available for immediate treatment, should a serious reaction occur. It is
advisable always to use an indwelling cannula or catheter for quick intravenous
access throughout the entire X-ray procedure.
Patients using -blockers may present with atypical symptoms of anaphylaxis which
may be interpreted as vagal reaction.

When performing vascular catheterization procedures one should pay meticulous
attention to the angiographic technique and flush the catheter frequently (e.g.: with
heparinized saline) so as to minimize the risk of procedure-related thrombosis and
Adequate hydration should be assured before and after contrast media administration.
This applies especially to patients with multiple myeloma, diabetes mellitus, renal
dysfunction, as well as to infants, small children and elderly patients.
Care should also be taken in patients with serious cardiac disease and pulmonary
hypertension as they may develop haemodynamic changes or arrhythmias.
Patients with acute cerebral pathology, tumours or a history of epilepsy are
predisposed for seizures and merit particular care. Also alcoholics and drug addicts
have an increased risk for seizures and neurological reactions. A few patients have
experienced a temporary hearing loss or even deafness after myelography, which is
believed to be due to a drop in spinal fluid pressure by the lumbar puncture per se.
Use of iodinated contrast media may cause contrast induced nephropathy, impairment
of renal function or acute renal failure.To prevent these conditions following contrast
media administration, special care should be exercised in patients with preexisting
renal impairment and diabetes mellitus as they are at risk. Patients with
paraproteinemias (myelomatosis and Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia) are also at
Preventive measures include:
• Identification of high risk patients
• Ensuring adequate hydration. If necessary by maintaining an i.v. infusion from
before the procedure until the contrast medium has been cleared by the kidneys.
• Avoiding additional strain on the kidneys in the form of nephrotoxic drugs, oral
cholecystographic agents, arterial clamping, renal arterial angioplasty, or major
surgery, until the contrast medium has been cleared.
• Postponing a repeat contrast medium examination until renal function returns to
pre-examination levels.
Diabetic patients receiving metformin.
There is a risk of the development of lactic acidosis when iodinated contrast agents
are administered to diabetic patients treated with metformin, particularly in those with
impaired renal function. To reduce the risk of lactic acidosis, the serum creatinine
level should be measured in diabetic patients treated with metformin prior to
intravascular administration of iodinated contrast media and the following precautions
undertaken in the following circumstances:
Normal serum creatinine (<130µmol/litre)/normal renal function: Administration of
metformin should be stopped at the time of administration of contrast medium and
should not be resumed for 48 hours and only be restarted if renal function/serum
creatinine remains in the normal range.
Abnormal serum creatinine (>130µmol/litre)/impaired renal function: Metformin
should be stopped and the contrast medium examination delayed for 48 hours.
Metformin should only be restarted 48 hours later if renal function is not diminished
(if serum creatinine is not increased) compared to pre-contrast values.

Emergency cases: In emergency cases where renal function is impaired or unknown,
the physician should evaluate the risk/benefit of the contrast medium examination,
and the following precautions should be implemented: Metformin should be stopped.
It is particularly important that the patient is fully hydrated prior to contrast medium
administration and for 24 hours afterwards. Renal function (e.g. serum creatinine),
serum lactic acid and blood pH should be monitored. A pH <7.25 or a lactic acid level
of >5 mmol/litre are indicative of lactic acidosis. The patient should be observed for
symptoms of lactic acidosis. These include vomiting, somnolence, nausea, epigastric
pain, anorexia, hyperpnoea, lethargy, diarrhoea and thirst.
A potential risk of transient hepatic dysfunction exists. Particular care is required in
patients with severe disturbance of both renal and hepatic function as they may have
significantly delayed contrast medium clearance. Patients on haemodialysis may
receive contrast media for radiological procedures. Correlation of the time of contrast
media injection with the haemodialysis session is unnecessary.
The administration of iodinated contrast media may aggravate the symptoms of
myasthenia gravis. In patients with phaeochromocytoma undergoing interventional
procedures, alpha blockers should be given as prophylaxis to avoid a hypertensive
crisis. Special care should be exercised in patients with hyperthyroidism. Patients
with multinodular goiter may be at risk of developing hyperthyroidism following
injection of iodinated contrast media.
Extravasation of contrast media may on rare occasions give rise to local pain, and
oedema, which usually recedes without sequelae. However, inflammation and even
tissue necrosis have been seen. Elevating and cooling the affected site is
recommended as routine measures. Surgical decompression may be necessary in
cases of compartment syndrome.
Patients must be kept under close observation for 15 minutes following the last
injection as the majority of severe reactions occur at this time. The patient should
remain in the hospital environment (but not necessarily the radiology department) for
one hour after the last injection, and should return to the radiology department if any
symptoms develop.
Intrathecal use
Following myelography the patient should rest with the head and thorax elevated by
20 for one hour. Thereafter he/she may ambulate carefully but bending down must be
avoided. The head and thorax should be kept elevated for the first 6 hours if
remaining in bed. Patients suspected of having a low seizure threshold should be
observed during this period. Outpatients should not be completely alone for the first
24 hours.
Paediatric population:
Premature infants are particularly sensitive to the effect of iodine. It is advisable to
monitor thyroid function. Thyroid function should be checked in neonates during the
first week of life, following administration of iodinated contrast agents to the mother
during pregnancy. Repeat testing of thyroid function is recommended at 2 to 6 weeks
of age, particularly in low birth weight newborn or premature newborn.
Especially in infants and small children, adequate hydration should be assured before
and after contrast media administration. Nephrotoxic medication should be
suspended. The age dependent reduced glomerular filtration rate in infants can also
result in delayed excretion of contrast agents.

Young infants (age < 1 year) and especially neonates are susceptible to electrolyte
disturbance and haemodynamic alterations.


Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

Use of iodinated contrast media may result in a transient impairment of renal function
and this may precipitate lactic acidosis in diabetics who are taking metformin (see
section 4.4).
Patients treated with interleukin-2 less than two weeks previously have been
associated with an increased risk for delayed reactions (flu-like symptoms or skin
All iodinated contrast media may interfere with tests on thyroid function, thus the
iodine binding capacity of the thyroid may be reduced for up to several weeks.
High concentrations of contrast media in serum and urine can interfere with
laboratory tests for bilirubin, proteins or inorganic substances (e.g. iron, copper,
calcium and phosphate). These substances should therefore not be assayed on the day
of examination.

Fertility, pregnancy and lactation
The safety of Omnipaque for use in human pregnancy has not been established. An
evaluation of experimental animal studies does not indicate direct or indirect harmful
effects with respect to reproduction, development of the embryo or foetus, the course
of gestation and peri- and postnatal development.
Since whenever possible, radiation exposure should be avoided during pregnancy, the
benefits of an X-ray examination, with or without contrast media, should be carefully
weighed against the possible risk. Omnipaque should not be used in pregnancy unless
the benefit outweighs the risk and it is considered essential by the physician.
Contrast media are poorly excreted in human breast milk and minimal amounts are
absorbed by the intestine. Breast feeding may be continued normally when iodinated
contrast media are given to the mother. The amount of iohexol in breast milk excreted
in 24 hours after injection was 0.5% of the weight adjusted dose in a trial. The amount
of iohexol ingested by the baby in the first 24 hours after injection corresponds to
only 0.2% of the paediatric dose.


Effects on ability to drive and use machines
No studies on the ability to drive or use machines have been performed. There is no
known effect on the ability to drive or operate machines. However, because of the risk
of reactions, driving or operating machinery it is not advisable to drive a car or use

machines for one hour after the last injection or for 24 hours following intrathecal
procedure (see section 4.4).
However, individual judgement must be performed if persistent post myelography


Undesirable effects

General (applies to all uses of iodinated contrast media)
Below are listed possible general side effects in relation with radiographic procedures,
which include the use of non-ionic monomeric contrast media. For side effects
specific to mode of administration, please refer to these specific sections.
Serious reactions as well as fatalities are only seen on very rare occasions.
Undesirable effects associated with Omnipaque are usually mild to moderate and
transient in nature.
Hypersensitivity reactions may occur irrespective of the dose and mode of
administration and mild symptoms may represent the first signs of a serious
anaphylactoid reaction/shock. Administration of the contrast medium must be
discontinued immediately and, if necessary, specific therapy instituted via the
vascular access.
An transient increase in S-creatinine is common after iodinated contrast media,
contrast induced nephropathy may occur.
Iodism or “iodide mumps” is a very rare complication of iodinated contrast media
resulting in swelling and tenderness of the salivary glands for up to approximately 10
days after the examination.
The listed frequencies are based on internal clinical documentation and published
large scale studies, comprising more than 90,000 patients.
The frequencies of undesirable effects are defined as follows:
Very common ( 1/10), common ( 1/100 to <1/10), uncommon ( 1/1,000 to <1/100),

Description of selected adverse reactions
Thrombo-embolic complications have been reported in connection with contrastenhanced angiography of coronary, cerebral, renal and peripheral arteries. The
contrast agent may have contributed to the complications (see section 4.4).
Cardiac complications including acute myocardial infarction have been reported
during or after contrast-enhanced coronary angiography. Elderly patients or patients
with severe coronary artery disease, unstable angina pectoris and left ventricular
dysfunction had a higher risk (see section 4.4).
In very rare occasions the contrast medium may cross the blood-brain barrier resulting
in uptake of contrast medium in the cerebral cortex that may cause neurological
reactions. They may include convulsions, transient motor or sensory disturbances,
transient confusion, transient memory loss, and encephalopathy (see section 4.4).
Anaphylactoid reaction and anaphylactoid shock may lead to profound hypotension
and related symptoms and signs like hypoxic encephalopathy, renal and hepatic
failure (see section 4.4).
In several cases, extravasation of contrast media has caused local pain and oedema,
which usually receded without sequelae. Inflammation, tissue necrosis and
compartment syndrome have occurred (see section 4.4).
Paediatric patients:
Transient hypothyroidism has been reported in premature infants, neonates and in
other children after administration of iodinated contrast media. Transient
hypothyroidism in a premature breast fed infant has been reported. The nursing
mother was repeatedly exposed to Omnipaque (see section 4.4).
Reporting of suspected adverse reactions
Reporting suspected adverse reactions after authorisation of the medicinal product is
important. It allows continued monitoring of the benefit/risk balance of the medicinal
product. Healthcare professionals are asked to report any suspected adverse reactions
via theYellow Card Scheme


Preclinical data indicate a high safety margin for Omnipaque and no fixed
upper dose level has been established for routine intravascular use.
Symptomatic overdosing is unlikely in patients with normal renal function
unless the patient has received an excess of 2000 mg I/kg body-weight over a
limited period of time. The duration of the procedure is important for the renal
tolerability of high doses of contrast media (t½ ~ 2 hours). Accidental
overdosing is most likely following complex angiographic procedures in
children, particularly when multiple injections of contrast medium with highconcentration are given.
In cases of overdose, any resulting water- or electrolyte imbalance must be
corrected. Renal function should be monitored for the next 3 days. If needed,
haemodialysis may be used for clearance of excessive contrast medium. There
is no specific antidote.




Pharmacodynamic properties
Pharmacotherapeutic group: X-ray contrast media, iodinated, ATC code: V08AB02
For most of the haemodynamic, clinical-chemical and coagulation parameters
examined following intravenous injection of iohexol in healthy volunteers, no
significant deviation from
preinjection values has been found. The few changes observed in the laboratory
parameters were minor and considered to be of no clinical importance.


Pharmacokinetic properties
Close to 100 per cent of the intravenously injected iohexol is excreted unchanged
through the kidneys within 24 hours in patients with normal renal function. The
maximum urinary concentration of iohexol appears within approximately 1 hour after
injection. No metabolites have been detected. The protein binding of Omnipaque is
very low (less than 2 %).


Pre-clinical Safety Data
Iohexol has a very low acute intravenous toxicity in mice and rats. Animal
studies have shown that iohexol has a very low protein binding, and is well
tolerated by the kidneys.
