ACIST CVi®: Reference 07

The ACIST Power Injection System reduces the amount of contrast media delivered to the patient, as well as fluoroscopy time during diagnostic and interventional cardiac procedures. Brosh D, Assali A, Fuchs S, et al. International Journal of Cardiovascular Interventions 2005;7(4):183-187.

Consecutive patients who underwent diagnostic coronary angiography and/or angioplasty were randomly assigned to either manual contrast injection (control, n=198) or to the ACIST System (study group, n=257). Routine utilization of the ACIST System during diagnostic and interventional procedures significantly reduced the total amount of contrast media used and fluoroscopy time.
