It should always be considered whether the selected catheter size has sufficient torque control to properly engage the coronary arteries.

3 For these patients premedication is indicated with H1and H2-receptor antagonists 5 to 10 minutes before contrast medium administration. 2. For patients with prior severe contrast-related reactions, additional premedication with corticosteroids is recommended. Prophylaxis is most effective when there is repeated corticosteroid administration 24, 12, and 2 hours before the start of the study (40 mg methylprednisolone orally each time).
