Abstract. We investigated the RBC aggregability in the patients with the foot diabetic gangrene in the venous blood samples taken from the damaged foot before its amputation, as well as from the cubital vein (the systemic circulation). The RBC aggregability was investigated with the “Georgian technique” that is sensitive and provided us with direct and quantitative data.we found that the RBC aggregability was higher by about 20%, in the blood flowing from the gangrenous tissue than in the systemic circulation.

Therefore, the sources of the systemic hemorheological disorders were the primarily damaged tissues. Taking into account that the blood in uninterruptedly flowing and mixing together in the whole circulatory bed we conclude that in the systemic circulation a certain compensatory mechanism provide for a partial normalization of the blood rheological properties, since the RBC aggregability never reaches the level in the blood of the healthy people.[/su_animate]

ABSTRACT The aim of the present study is comparison of changes of principal hemorheological factors responsible for blood flow disorders in the microcirculation in patients with ischemic brain infarcts. It was found that in venous blood samples the erythrocyte aggregability (examined with a direct, highly sensitive, quantitative technique) was considerably more increased (by mean of 120%) than the blood plasma fibrinogen contents, blood plasma viscosity, and hematocrit which increased only by 23.7%, 7.4% and 3.6%, respectively, as compared to the same hemorheological factors in the healthy controls.

Abstract

Under both the in vivo and in vitro conditions we investigated the insulin effect on the most significant factor disturbing the blood rheological disorders in the microcirculation, the red blood cell aggregability.

 

 

[su_animate type=”slideInRight”]The in vivo studies we carried out in the 42 insulin treated diabetic patients (diabetes mellitus type II), as well as conducted the in vitro investigations of the blood both of the diabetic patients (24) and of the healthy people (20) where the insulin was added to the blood ex vivo. The RBC aggregability in blood investigated with the “Georgian technique” was found significantly enhanced, by about 100 per cents in the diabetic patients.[/su_animate]

We investigated the RBC aggregability in the patients with the foot diabetic gangrenes: in the venous blood samples taken from the damaged foot before its amputation, as well as from the cubital vein (the systemic circulation). The RBC aggregability was investigated with the "Georgian technique" that is sensitive and provided us with direct and quantitative data. We found that the RBC aggregability was higher by about 20%, in the blood flowing from the gangrenous tissue than in the systemic circulation.[/su_animate]

Abstract. The aim of the present study was to evaluate blood rheological disorders, in particular RBC enhanced aggregation, and compare changes in these parameters in patients with type I and II diabetes mellitus. For evaluation of RBC aggregability in the present study we applied the “Georgian technique”, which was developed and applied for several years in our laboratory. Its advantage is that it is a direct and quantitative method. In all the investigated patients, diabetes mellitus was compared with the foot gangrenes. The patients were divided into two groups: (a) with type I and with type II diabetes mellitus. We matched the RBC aggregability indices in both groups of diabetic patients and compared the obtained results with those in the healthy control group. We found that rheological disorders were considerably pronounced.

[su_animate type=”fadeInLeft”]

The RBC aggregability index increased by 62 per cent (p<0.001) in type I and by 57 per cent (p<0.001) in type II diabetic patients as compared to the control group. However, there were insignificant differences of the RBC aggregability changes between the two groups of the patients. Therefore we conclude that blood rheological disorders are similar in both types of diabetes mellitus. The disturbed blood fluidity related to the increased RBC aggregability in the microcirculation promotes, in particular, the development of the gangrene in both types of diabetes mellitus.Text[/su_animate]
