Have you use co2 in your practice and has the outcome been just as good as contrast dye. do contrast dye need to be used to confirm patency afterwards?

CO2 contrast: Understand you are asking about CO2 angiography as an alternate to contrast dye-angiography. It is reported to result in images that are somewhat lower in quality. Patency demonstrated via CO2 angiogram would not need to be confirmed with dye - the reason to use CO2 is lost if it is followed by infusion of dye!
