BACKGROUND: The progressive deterioration of red blood cell (RBC) rheologic properties during refrigerated storage may reduce the clinical efficacy of transfusion of older units. 
Dynamics of shape recovery by stored red blood cells during washing at the single cell level
TLDR
This work investigated how washing (known to positively affect RBC properties) changes morphology of individual RBCs at the single‐cell level. Expand
Concurrent Assessment of Deformability and Adhesiveness of Sickle Red Blood Cells by Measuring Perfusion of an Adhesive Artificial Microvascular Network
TLDR
Overall, these findings suggest the potential utility of the adhesive AMVN device for evaluating the effect of novel curative and palliative therapies on the hemorheological status of SCD patients during clinical trials and in post-market clinical practice. Expand
Development of a flow standard to enable highly reproducible measurements of deformability of stored red blood cells in a microfluidic device
TLDR
A new method to standardize and improve reproducibility of the RBC deformability measurements using one of a number of microfluidic devices with capillary‐like microchannels is described. Expand
Microfluidic capillary networks are more sensitive than ektacytometry to the decline of red blood cell deformability induced by storage
TLDR
Test data suggest that capillary networks are significantly more sensitive to both the overall storage-induced decline of RBC deformability, and to the differences between the two storage conditions, than ektacytometry. Expand
Temporal sequence of the human RBCs' vesiculation observed in nano-scale with application of AFM and complementary techniques.
TLDR
The nanoscale characterization of RMPs was correlated with a decrease in cholesterol and triglycerides levels in the RBC membranes, proving the link between the lipids leakage from RBCs and the process of vesiculation. Expand
Blood rheology biomarkers in sickle cell disease
TLDR
A comprehensive panel of rheological biomarkers, their clinical uses, and the technologies used to obtain them are described, which could significantly accelerate the development, optimization, and clinical translation of novel therapies for SCD. Expand
Washing in hypotonic saline reduces the fraction of irreversibly-damaged cells in stored blood: a proof-of-concept study.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that washing in hypotonic saline could selectively remove a significant fraction of the spherical and PS-exposing cells from stored blood, while significantly improving the rheological properties of remaining well-preserved RBCs. Expand
Changes in Erythrocyte Morphology at Initiation of Cardiopulmonary Bypass Without Blood Transfusion Were Not Associated With Less Deformability During Cardiac Surgery.
TLDR
Morphological changes at initiation of CPB are considered potentially reversible transformations without loss of the membrane surface area and do not have a significant effect on the DImax; a decrease in deformability likely is due to transfusion of stored RBCs. Expand
Albumin reverses the echinocytic shape transformation of stored erythrocytes.
TLDR
In conclusion, albumin has the capacity to reverse echinocytosis generated by RBC storage, which may improve the quality of RBC units stored for longer periods of time. Expand
The optimum hematocrit.

  • Medicine
  • Clinical hemorheology and microcirculation
  • 2016
TLDR
Data with healthy individuals suggest that the optimum Hct for oxygen transport may be higher than the physiological range (35-40% in women, 39-50% in men); this is in contrast to clinical observations. Expand

The aim of this study was to analyse the elasticity of stored RBCs from patients with the sickle cell trait (AS) to present reduced deformability. Expand
Blood banking–induced alteration of red blood cell flow properties
TLDR
This study comprehensively explored the effect of cold storage and gamma irradiation on RBC flow properties and found that cold storage contributes to their deformability, aggregability, and adherence to endothelial cells. Expand
Is red blood cell rheology preserved during routine blood bank storage?
TLDR
The rheologic properties and cell variables of leukoreduced RBC units, during routine blood bank storage in saline‐adenine‐glucose‐mannitol, were investigated. Expand

TLDR
The duration of red blood cell storage before transfusion may alter RBC function and, therefore, influence the incidence of complications. Expand
Erythrocyte storage in hypertonic (SAGM) or isotonic (PAGGSM) conservation medium: influence on cell properties
TLDR
The role of additive conservation solutions, either hypertonic or isotonic, on red blood cell properties may be associated with increased post‐transfusion morbidity and mortality. Expand

Relationship of post‐transfusion viability to deformability of stored red cells
TLDR
During storage in the liquid state, red cells progressively lose their ability to survive in vivo and they become less deformable and measurement of red cell deformability after storage may be of value in predicting the viability of the cells. Expand
Influence of storage on red blood cell rheological properties.
TLDR
Serious hemorrheological disorders, including the decrease in RBC deformability secondary to shape abnormalities, acidosis, and the decrease of blood clotting, start already at the second week of storage and progress up to the end of the storage period. Expand
