The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of the obesity degree on red blood cell aggregation and deformability. We studied 56 obese patients before weight loss surgery who were divided into two groups: morbid obesity and super obesity. The aggregation and deformability of RBCs were evaluated using a Laser-assisted Optical Rotational Cell Analyzer (Mechatronics, the Netherlands). The following parameters specific to the aggregation process were estimated: aggregation index (AI… CONTINUE READING
