A longitudinal study of the red blood cell (RBC) deformability, percent of dense erythrocytes, and hematologic parameters has been conducted during 117 painful crises affecting 36 patients with sickle cell anemia between January, 1985 and December, 1990. RBC deformability was determined by osmotic gradient ektacytometry and the percentage of dense cells was quantitated by centrifugation on a discontinuous Stractan density gradient. The data indicate that the painful crisis is a process that… CONTINUE READING
