  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...

  We examined the relationships of whole blood viscosity and its major determinants to incident cardiovascular events (ischaemic heart disease and stroke) in a prospective study of a random population sample of 1592 men and women aged 55-74 years (the Edinburgh Artery Study). 272 fatal and non-...

  Several lines of evidence indicate that pathologic blood flow properties lead to a deterioration in the prognosis of patients with arteriosclerotic diseases, especially after a stroke. We tested this hypothesis in a prospective study including 625 patients with a first stroke that dated back less...

  The West of Scotland Coronary Prevention Study (WOSCOPS) showed that pravastatin reduced the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) events in 6,595 middle-aged hypercholesterolaemic men aged 45-64 years without prior myocardial infarction followed for an average of 4.9 years. We hypothesised...

   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...

  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...

  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...
