  OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effects of transdermal hormone replacement therapy (HRT) on some biological cardiovascular risk factors, specificallythromboxane B2 level and plasma viscosity. Furthermore, we investigated Doppler flow modifications at the level of the uterine, internal carotid,...

  BACKGROUND: Statins are used for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. Although they are well known to have pleiotropic effects, their dose-dependent influence on platelet aggregation, hemorheologic properties and the plasma levels of homocysteine in patients with peripheral arterial disease (...

  The effects of a beta-blocker, carvedilol, on peripheral hemodynamics and hemorheologic parameters were evaluated in 11 geriatric patients with essential hypertension [3 men and 8 women aged 62-79 years (mean, 68.6 years)]. Carvedilol was given orally after breakfast at a dose of 10 or 20 mg...

  Evidence for the usefulness of hydroxychloroquine as prophylaxis against thromboembolism after total hip replacement is examined. This agent causes reduction in red blood cell aggregation without prolonging the bleeding time in humans and, experimentally, reduces the size of the thrombus. There...
Type: Abstracts
  To assess the effect of lovastatin on blood rheology, the hemorheological determinants fibrinogen, red cell aggregation, plasma viscosity, hematocrit and platelet aggregation (spontaneous and ADP-induced) were studied in 15 patients with type II hyperlipoproteinemia in the course of treatment...

  The newly developed antihypertensive drugs, the long-acting beta-blocker propranolol and the sustained release calcium antagonist verapamil, arecompared in their antihypertensive, platelet function, rheological properties and metabolic effects. The trial was a double-blind, randomised, placebo-...

  OBJECTIVE: To assess the effects of low-dose eicosapentaenoic acid-ethyl-ester on diabetes regulation, lipid metabolism, blood rheology, andplatelet reactivity. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, 24 NIDDM subjects received 1800 mg of EPA-E, 900...
Type: Abstracts
  OBJECTIVE: To evaluate 1) the hemorrheologic and hemodynamic effects of glyceryl trinitrate in patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and 2) the influence of antioxidants on these effects. DESIGN: Case-control study. SETTING: University hospital clinic. PATIENTS: 40 patients with...
Type: Abstracts
  Since fish oil has been reported to reduce platelet aggregability, to reduce blood viscosity by increasing red blood cell deformability and to lower blood pressure, we studied the effect of dietary supplementation with fish oil on the occurrence of adverse effects in patients receiving...
