Blood Viscosity Abnormalities in Large and Small Vessel Diseases: Future Directions for Plasma Medicine

ABSTRAKT

This review contrasts the effect of blood viscosity abnormalities in large and small vessels. Blood viscosity is an underutilized biophysical parameter and a critical determinant of endothelial shear stress. Epidemiologic studies have shown that blood viscosity may play a prognostic role in monitoring the development of cardiovascular diseases. For microcirculatory disorders, observational studies have demonstrated an association between blood viscosity and complications arising from type 2 diabetes, such as diabetic retinopathy. A new therapeutic modality for treating blood using nonequilibrium plasma (nonthermal ionized gas) is reviewed as an emerging technology in the treatment of hemodynamic and rheologic syndromes in large and small vessel diseases.
