  BACKGROUND AND AIM: Hypertriglyceridemia is a risk factor for atherosclerosis that is typically associated with high concentrations of adhesionmolecules, impaired hemorrheology and an unfavourable low-density lipoprotein (LDL) subtype distribution. We hypothesised that some of these riskmarkers...

  There is increasing evidence that hemorrheological abnormalities are associated with an enhanced risk of atherosclerosis. The n-3 fatty acids (n-3-FA) have been shown to have beneficial effects on atherosclerosis in patients with dyslipoproteinemias. We studied 23 patients with elevated plasma...

  Blood and plasma viscosity was measured in 13 patients with hypothyroidism before and during replacement therapy with l-thyroxine. Blood viscositywas measured at natural hematocrit and after adjustment to 40%. The values were compared to those of 12 healthy subjects. Both blood viscosity...

  The effect of simvastatin in 27 patients with severe primary hypercholesterolaemia was assessed by a double-blind placebo controlled parallel grouptrial. Total serum cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol and apoprotein B (ApoB) were significantly reduced by simvastatin 40 mg daily. Reductions...

   BACKGROUND: Major depressive disorder (MDD) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD); the presence of MDD symptoms in patients with CVD is associated with a higher incidence of cardiac complications following acute myocardial infarction (MI). Stress-hemoconcentration, a...

  Peripheral artery disease is associated with altered blood rheologic properties, including increased viscosity and decreased red blood cell (RBC)deformability. Pentoxifylline and cilostazol are available therapies for intermittent claudication. Improvement of blood viscosity and erythrocyte...

  In addition to their effects on blood pressure, antihypertensive agents may produce additional effects on blood rheology and arterial complianceabnormalities which may play a role in target-organ damage. However, these effects may depend only on the specific pharmacological properties of certain...

  The effects of statins have been investigated mostly in hyperlipidemic states so far. We analysed blood cholesterol, triglyceride, albumin, fibrinogenand gammaglobulin levels, haematocrite, hemoglobin, erythrocyte, leukocyte and platelet counts, blood and plasma viscosity and erythrocyte...

  Twelve type I (insulin-dependent) diabetic subjects in stable metabolic control for at least 3 mo received a controlled diet containing 50%carbohydrate, 35% fat, and 15% protein. Calorie intake varied from 1800 to 2200 calories, depending on individual needs. Part of the polyunsaturatedomega-6...
Type: Abstracts
  Haemorheological changes have been described in hypertension as well as in diabetes mellitus. Antihypertensive treatment improves rheology inhypertensive patients. The aim of this study was to describe the haemorheological profile and its impact on shear stress in hypertensive type 2 diabetes...
