The Short-Term Effect of Intravenous Nitroglycerin on Haematocrit; an Additional Benefit in Patients With Myocardial Ischaemia?
Organic nitrates exert their effect by direct inhibition of vascular tone, resulting in decreased myocardial oxygen demand and improved oxygen supply. Less well known is the effect of nitrates on blood rheology. To evaluate the haemodiluting effect of intravenous nitroglycerin we studied 70...

Effects of Pravastatin Sodium and Simvastatin on Plasma Fibrinogen Level and Blood Rheology in Type II Hyperlipoproteinemia.
Elevated plasma fibrinogen level is known to progress atherosclerosis and to be one of the risk factors for the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases. The objective of this study is to evaluate the changes in plasma fibrinogen level and blood rheology in patients with type II...
