  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...

  Blood viscosity (eta B) at shear rates 10 and 100s-1, plasma viscosity (eta P), hematocrit (Hct), and whole blood cholesterol (Chol) were measured in50 patients with a history of myocardial infarction or unstable angina pectoris. Erythrocyte morphology was also studied by scanning electron...

  Hemorheological factors play an important role in the pathogenesis of different cardiovascular diseases. The hemorheological and hemodynamic parameters in essential hypertension and their possible modification by antihypertensive treatment were examined in the following two studies. In the first...

  Propofol has previously been found to decrease hematocrit values. Because hematocrit is an important determinant of blood viscosity, lowerhematocrits may cause a decrease in blood viscosity, improving blood flow and oxygen delivery. This phenomenon may be beneficial in certain intraoperative...

  We have evaluated blood viscosity parameters in 20 men suffering from coronary heart disease (CHD) and in 15 control subjects. Whole bloodviscosity at a standardized haematocrit of 45% was significantly increased in the CHD-patients, both at low (p less than 0.001) and high (p less than0.05)...

  It is known from previous studies that hemorheological parameters are altered in patients with essential hypertension. The hemorheological and hemodynamical effects of doxazosin, a selective alpha-1-adrenoreceptor blocker agent, was examined in twenty patients (mean age: 54+/-10 years) with...

  This study was designed to characterize blood viscosity changes in 13 patients with mild to moderate diastolic hypertension treated with ramiprilmonotherapy for three months. The ramipril dose was titrated from 2.5 to 20 mg daily to achieve a diastolic blood pressure of less than 90 mm Hg....

  As part of a randomized, single-blind, comparative study evaluating the efficacy of lovastatin and bezafibrate retard in the treatment of primaryhypercholesterolemia, hemorheologic parameters (whole blood viscosity, hematocrit, plasma viscosity, red blood cell aggregation and deformability, and...

  Primary familial forms of chylomicronemia can lead to acute life-threatening complications, especially acute pancreatitis. The main aim of therapy is toavoid this so-called chylomicronemia syndrome. In 12 patients with primary chylomicronemia due to familial hypertriglyceridemia, the addition of...

  Elevated plasma viscosity is a predictor of atherosclerotic vascular disease and is a potential mechanism by which hypertriglyceridemia increasescardiovascular risk. Previous studies of plasma viscosity reduction in hypertriglyceridemic patients used medications that lowered both triglycerideand...
