   Hemorheological factors play an important role in the pathogenesis of different cardiovascular diseases. Diabetes mellitus resulting in micro- and macroangiopathies is one of the major risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. In our present study the hemorheological parameters (hematocrit,...

  Diabetic microangiopathy may be associated with the pathogenesis and progression of autonomic and peripheral neuropathy. In 17 long-standing type I diabetic patients with peripheral and autonomic cardiovascular neuropathy, several hemorheological and hemostatic alterations were found compared to...

  Blood viscosity (shear rates 100s-1 and 0.94s-1) and several of its major determinants (haematocrit, plasma fibrinogen and plasma viscosity) have been measured in 38 male insulin-treated diabetics, aged 18-50 years, and in 38 non-diabetic control subjects matched for age and smoking habit....

  Diabetes mellitus is associated with circulatory abnormalities. The blood flow in the skin of the dorsum of the foot and haemorheological variables were measured in 36 subjects. They were divided into three equal groups of diabetic patients: those with neuropathy, and both age and sex matched non...

  Blood rheology and haemostasis were assessed in 18 diabetics with proliferative retinopathy and in 18 diabetics without proliferative retinopathy, matched for age, sex, smoking habit and type, duration and treatment of diabetes. Proliferative retinopathy was associated with significantly higher...
Type: Abstracts
  Blood viscosity at low shear-rates was significantly higher in sixty-four patients with longstanding diabetes than in sixty-one matched non-diabetic controls. This increase was most striking in patients with either proliferative retinopathy or nephropathy, although it was present to a lesser...

  1. In order to determine whether rheological changes occur in neuropathic diabetic patients in the absence of smoking, proteinuria, retinopathy or other factors thought to influence haemorheology, three groups of subjects were studied; 24 non-diabetic control subjects (C), 24 non-neuropathic (D)...
Type: Abstracts
  The viscosity of the whole blood, plasma and serum, haematocrit and plasma fibrinogen were studied in diabetic patients with (DR) and without (D)retinopathy and in non-diabetic control subjects (C). Blood viscosity was significantly higher in diabetics than in controls. No significant differences...

  The aim of the present study was the comparative analysis of the role of specific hemorheological derangements in the pathogenesis of ischemicbrain infarcts with and without diabetes mellitus. Blood plasma viscosity, as well as red blood cells (RBC) aggregability were quantitatively investigated...
