Ventricular fibrillation associated with methiodal sodium myelography in a dog: a case report

Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association 21(2): 290-292

Ventricular fibrillation associated with methiodal sodium myelography in a dog: a case report

Severe tachycardia, dysrhythmias, hypertension, and previously unreported ventricular fibrillation occurred during subarachnoid myelography with an admixture of 20% intravenous-type methiodal sodium and 0.1% lidocaine, without epinephrine, at a dosage of 0.5 ml/kg. Post-mortem study showed hypertrophic myocardial disease changes secondary to dirofilariasis.
