Özet

Background. Impaired hemorrheological properties may worsen the tissue hypoxia distal to an arterial narrowing in patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD). The objective of this study was to investigate the changes in red blood cell rigidity, blood viscosity and plasma viscosity as contributing factors in the development of hypoxia in patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI).
