Seizures are possible complications of metrizamide myelography. The protective effect (as measured by reduction in seizure incidence) of dextrose in solution with metrizamide was studied by conducting a double-blind trial. Fourteen dogs each had two myelograms at five- to 16-day intervals in a crossover study, while ten additional dogs each had a single myelogram. Metrizamide alone and metrizamide in dextrose were used for the myelograms. No significant protective effect of dextrose was found.
