Experience with the use of epinephrine renal venography in 60 patients with various renal disease is reviewed. The technique offers an important supplement to selective arteriography. It is of particular value in the diagnosis of avascular infiltrative tumors of the renal parenchyma and pelvis. Further, it is of value in the detailed demonstration of renal vein thrombosis and in seeking the cause of unexplained gross hematuria. It can also aid in evaluating expansile avascular renal masses and renal parenchymal disease. The authors found only a relatively low value for epinephrine renal venography in the diagnosis of hypervascular renal tumors and the early detection of venous extension of hypernephromas.
