  An open, prospective study was undertaken to investigate the effects of enalapril on hemorheology in patients with renal disease and complicatinghypertension. Cellular and plasma determinants of blood viscosity and renal function were measured in 19 patients at baseline and 2, 60 and 120days...

  In order to investigate the influence of diabetic treatment, especially insulin treatment on diabetic retinopathy, disc-to-macula circulation time, platelet aggregation and blood viscosity were observed before and after treatment for 5 years in 42 diabetics (17 insulin-dependent diabetics [IDD]...

  AIM: To compare the effects of an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor and a thiazide diuretic on platelet function and haemorrheologicalvariables, since these factors may contribute to the atherosclerotic and thrombotic complications associated with hypertension. METHODS: Following a 2-...

  We have examined, in normal subjects, the effects of a daily dietary supplement of fish oil concentrate ('maxEPA'), providing 3 g of omega-3 fattyacids, on erythrocyte membrane phospholipids, erythrocyte deformability and blood viscosity. After 3 weeks, incorporation of C20:5 omega 3...

  The aim of this study was to test the effects of Ilex kudingcha total saponins on hemorheology of ApoE-/- mice suffering from hypercholesterolemia induced by high-cholesterol diet. The mice were randomly divided into six groups: the control group, the high-cholesterol diet group, 50 mg/kg...

  Transdermal nitroglycerin (Nitroderm TTS 5) and a placebo were applied to 10 healthy male volunteers for 10 days. Before the first application and 6, 24, 48, 96, and 240 h thereafter, the viscosity of plasma and whole blood was measured and the packed-cell volume determined. During...

  Whole blood and plasma viscosity, red cell aggregability and deformability, and plasma fibrinogen have been compared between 20 patients withheterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH), without clinical arterial disease, and 20 age- and sex-matched controls. Plasma fibrinogen was elevated in...

  This study was designed to examine changes of hemorheological parameters in patients with CHD and hypercholesterolaemia (wide range of plasmatotal cholesterol level from 5.6 to 9.8 mmol.l-1) subjected to lipid lowering therapy with statins (simvastatin, 10.0-20.0 mg/day, dosage was dependenton an...

  We studied 30 patients (age range 58 to 64 years) who underwent vascular surgery for peripheral vascular disease (24 patients) and for carotid stenosis (6 patients). At the time of the study, all subjects have been taking antiplatelet agents for at least three months. They were divided into three...
Type: Abstracts
  Changes in hemorheological parameters were studied in dogs following unilateral renal artery clamping (45-minute ischemia then reperfusion), with and without preoperative administration of allopurinol. Sham-operated animals were also evaluated. Blood samples were collected preoperatively, at...
