  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...

  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 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...

  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...

  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...
