Project: Influence of humoral and haemorheological factors on organ damage in coronary artery disease, peripheral arterial occlusive disease, arterial hypertension, and heart failure.

01-OCT-93 – 31-DEC-99
There is evidence that haemorheology is disturbed in coronary artery and peripheral vascular disease, but also in hypertension and heart failure. Haemorheology may be of prognostic value. Determination of rheologic parameters of plasma and RBCs occurs with rotative viscosimeter. Organ damage in vascular disease and hypertension is not only determined by haemodynamic but also by humoral parameters. These hormones will be determined and correlated with the atherosclerotic and haemorheologid abnorm
