Raynaud's phenomenon is a paroxysmal and reversible vasospasm affecting generally the acral circulatory regions. The relevance of the haemorheological alterations in these patients, as a source of ischemic events has been neglected. The objective of the present work was to evaluate and correlate the rheological blood properties, some biochemical parameters, e.g., plasma fibrinogen and immunoglobulin levels, and periungual capillaroscopy. The explicative variables considered were: blood… CONTINUE READING
