  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...

  The present study in female rats determined the effects of experimental hyperthyroidsm on hemorheological parameters and fibrinogen concentration. To induce experimental hyperthyroidism L-thyroxine (0.4 mg/100 g fodder) was added to the fodder of the experimental group rats for 20 d....

  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...

  Raloxifene, the prototype of the selective estrogen receptor modulators, has been associated with an increased risk of venous thromboembolism. As hemorheological factors may be involved in thrombus formation this placebo-controlled study investigated whether raloxifene was associated with changes...

  Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) apheresis is a treatment option in patients with coronary artery disease and elevated LDL cholesterol concentrations ifmaximal drug therapy fails to achieve adequate LDL cholesterol reduction. This therapy is more effective when combined with strong lipid-lowering...

  A study was carried out in 40 patients undergoing minor surgery to investigate the effect of hydroxychloroquine on haemorrheological parameterswhich might explain its reported anti-thrombotic action. Twenty patients received 600 mg to 1400 mg hydroxychloroquine sulphate in the 48-hour period...

  To determine the effect of atorvastatin on blood rheology in patients with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) on regular LDL apheresis, weprospectively studied the rheological variables fibrinogen, plasma viscosity, red cell aggregation, whole blood viscosity, hematocrit and plateletaggregation...
Type: Abstracts
  The effects of acute morphine administration on intact erythrocytes and on their flow properties were studied by measuring the mean cell volume, cell geometry, and whole blood and plasma viscosities. Morphine caused a small (2-7%) increase in mean cell volume. Changes in cell geometry were found...
