Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation, a peer-reviewed international scientific journal, serves as an aid to understanding the flow properties of blood and the relationship to normal and abnormal physiology. The rapidly expanding science of hemorheology concerns blood, its components and the blood vessels with which blood interacts. It includes perihemorheology, i.e., the rheology of fluid and structures in the perivascular and interstitial spaces as well as the lymphatic system. The clinical aspects include pathogenesis, symptomatology and diagnostic methods, and the fields of prophylaxis and therapy in all branches of medicine and surgery, pharmacology and drug research.
The endeavour of the Editors-in-Chief and publishers of
Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation is to bring together contributions from those working in various fields related to blood flow all over the world. The editors of
Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation are from those countries in Europe, Asia, Australia and America where appreciable work in clinical hemorheology and microcirculation is being carried out. Each editor takes responsibility to decide on the acceptance of a manuscript. He is required to have the manuscript appraised by two referees and may be one of them himself. The executive editorial office, to which the manuscripts have been submitted, is responsible for rapid handling of the reviewing process.
Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation accepts original papers, brief communications, mini-reports and letters to the Editors-in-Chief. Review articles, providing general views and new insights into related subjects, are regularly invited by the Editors-in-Chief. Proceedings of international and national conferences on clinical hemorheology (in original form or as abstracts) complete the range of editorial features.
The following professionals and institutions will benefit most from subscribing to
Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation: medical practitioners in all fields including hematology, cardiology, geriatrics, angiology, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, ophthalmology, otology, and neurology. Pharmacologists, clinical laboratories, blood transfusion centres, manufacturing firms producing diagnostic instruments, and the pharmaceutical industry will also benefit.
Important new topics will increasingly claim more pages of
Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation: the role of hemorheological and microcirculatory disturbances for epidemiology and prognosis, in particular regarding cardiovascular disorders, as well as its significance in the field of geriatrics. Authors and readers are invited to contact the editors for specific information or to make suggestions.
Abstract: Attention has been paid to the relationship between hypertension and hemorheology by several authors and their results showed that hypertension was associated with altered blood viscosity. The previous reports were empirically from one or several points of blood viscosity under different shear rates. Can we consider the pathogenesis from the whole curve of blood viscosity versus shear rate? Our aims are to use new concepts to reveal hemorheological properties and to analyze the pathological changes for essential hypertension by a Casson equation which summarize the whole curve of blood viscosity versus various shear rate. We use two parameters which are…derived from Casson equation and regressed from all the data of shear stress and shear rate, i. e. Casson yield stress and Casson viscosity, to describe the hemorheological changes for 139 cases of hypertension patients. Our results showed that: 1) The total patients show increase of the two Casson parameters, especially for female patients; 2) Essential hypertension in the early stage may be not closely connected to Casson parameters; 3) When essential hypertension begins to complicate with cerebral and coronary heart diseases, or some other diseases, the patients show remarked changes in the two Casson parameters, especially for Casson yield stress; 4) Yield stress may be the best parameter to show abnormality in hemorheology, and Casson viscosity is also good to show the abnormality in hemorheology; 5) Yield stress and Casson viscosity are proportionally correlated to hematocrit and plasma viscosity, especially for the yield stress.
