Hypertension can be considered as a progressive ischaemic syndrome interesting micro- and macrovasculature. In hypertensives it is possible to observe a link between an increase in peripheral resistance and blood viscosity, and a decrease in red blood cell (RBC) deformability. It is important to underline the link between the increase of blood viscosity, the decrease of RBC deformability and the cytosolic calcium level, which is related to the ischaemic syndrome in hypertension. The aim of this… CONTINUE READING
