BACKGROUND In peripheral vascular disease (PVD), impaired blood viscosity (BV) plays a major role in residual microvascular perfusion. Indeed, during acute leg ischaemia factors influencing microvascular BV include the plasma fibrinogen concentration, red and white blood cell rheology, as well as platelet aggregation and activation. AIM To assess the… CONTINUE READING
