Autoptic surprise: rupture of the superior vena cava in a case of suspected death caused by contrastographic accident. A case study and medicolegal comments
Marinelli E., Zaami S.
The authors report a lethal case of rupture of the superior vena cava during the course of chest CT using a contrast medium, fostered by perivascular cicatricial synechiae and initially attributed to an adverse reaction to the contrast medium. The paper describes the main anatomophathological findings and discusses the behaviour of medical and technical personnel involved in terms of the appropriateness of their respective tasks.
