Hypaque (diatrizoate) Disease Interactions

There are 2 disease interactions with Hypaque (diatrizoate):


Radiopaque contrast agents (Includes Hypaque) ↔ pheochromocytoma

Severe Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Pheochromocytoma

Administration of radiopaque materials to patients known or suspected of having pheochromocytoma should be performed with extreme caution. If, in the opinion of the physician, the possible benefits of such procedures outweigh the considered risk, the procedures should be performed with the absolute minimum amount of injected radiopaque medium. The blood pressure should be assessed throughout the procedure and measures for treatment of a hypertensive crisis should be available.


Diatrizoate (Includes Hypaque) ↔ congestive heart failure

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Congestive Heart Failure

Due to the transitory increase in the circulatory osmotic load, injections with urographic agents should be used with caution in patients with congestive heart failure. Such patients should be observed for several hours following the procedure to detect delayed hemodynamic disturbances.
