Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The haemorheological determinants were studied in 83 patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI); the survivors were subdivided in relation to diabetes and haemodynamic class. All viscosity determinants were measured at the early stage (within 48 hours) and in the two weeks after AMI. The haemorheological changes that are more evident in MI patients deceased, are not dependent on diabetes and haemodynamic class, except for the haematocrit, in MI patients survivors. The authors suggest that the blood rheology should form part of the parameters studied at the different stages of AMI. The also hold, according to indications reported by other authors, that the correction of their alterations is useful.
