Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of cardiovascular mortality worldwide. Even more, it is projected that CAD mortality rates will double from 1990 to 2020, with approximately 82% of the increase attributable to the developing world [5]. Prevention and targeted control of risk factors for CAD could potentially reduce the impact of CAD in the developing world.

Abstract. It could be conjectured that the hemorheological disorders are involved in development of the ischemic heart disease. But this fact was so far insufficiently cleared up. The present studies were carried out in patients with various forms of chronic ischemic heart disease. We investigated the most significant factor of rheological disorders in the microcirculation, the erythrocyte aggregability, which a technique that provided us with the direct and quantitative data. Simultaneously we investigated in the some patients the tone of the resistance arteries of the hand with an original non-invasive technique. We found that the erythrocyte aggregability increased almost twice in the blood of investigated patients as compared to the healthy control group. The aggregability was positively correlated with severity of the disease.

Significance of the hemorheological disorders in development of acute vascular syndromes is presenltky well known, but their role in pathogenesis of chronic ischemic heart disease is not yet sufficiently analyzed. Aim of the present study was investigation of the relationship between the hemorheological, vascular and hemodynamic factors during the ischemic heart disease.
