Paper Abstract

In this work we investigated the erythrocyte membrane viscoelastic behavior, in hypertensive and dislipidemic patients using the "Erythrodeformeter" that permit to obtain the stationary and dynamical linear parameters of erythrocyte membrane by laser diffractometry. Our results show that several erythrocyte membrane rheological parameters were statistically altered in patients if compared with the control group. Then, the analyzed hemorheological parameters could be use in order to detect and diagnostic the hypertension and dyslipidemic alterations.
