  We investigated several rheologic variables in 17 patients (11 men, six women, mean age = 52.1 +/- 9.8 years) with chronic stable angina. None took any medication except for sublingual nitroglycerin for 2 weeks before the study, and all had angiographically proven coronary artery disease with no...

  The pathophysiological abnormalities of stable angina (SA) and acute coronary syndromes (ACS) may, in part, be promoted by fluid forces associated with local blood flow and hence by the rheological properties of blood. This study evaluated several hemorheological parameters in 16 healthy controls...

  Thrombotic risk factors may be important in determining cardiovascular outcome in patients with symptomatic peripheral arterial disease. A cohort study with a 6-year follow-up period was established to determine the relationships between haemostatic and rheological factors and incidentischaemic...

  The aim of this study was to evaluate hemorheologic variables in patients with acute coronary syndromes in relation to the occurrence of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). In 370 consecutive patients with acute coronary syndromes, 215 with STEMIs and 155 with non-ST-segment...

   OBJECTIVES: As most clinical studies measure whole blood viscosity (WBV) from peripheral samples, potential differences in WBV obtained from the coronary arteries are often ignored. This study investigated differences in WBV measured from coronary artery specimens in patients with and without...

  Hemorheological parameters (viscosity of whole blood, plasma viscosity, hematocrit, velocity of red blood cells) were studied in 30 patients with coronary artery disease (15 patients with acute myocardial infarction, 15 patients with chronic angina), 14 subjects at high risk for ischemic heart...
