[Hemorheologic characteristics in beta-thalassemic homozygotes before and after splenectomy].

Abstract

In a group of 36 homozigous beta-thalassaemic children we studied the effect of splenectomy on hemorheologic characteristics. The aim of the work was to evaluate the importance of such operation either on anemia or on erythrocyte deformability. Whole blood viscosity was measured with a Brookfield Microviscometer (LVT) and erythrocyte deformability was… (More)
