Plasma and blood viscosity in the prediction of cardiovascular disease and mortality in the Scottish Heart Health Extended Cohort Study

Abstract:
Background: There is increasing evidence that blood viscosity and its major determinants (haematocrit and plasma viscosity) are associated with increased risks of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and premature mortality; however, their predictive value for CVD and mortality is not clear. Methods: We prospectively assessed the added predictive value of plasma viscosity and whole-blood viscosity and haematocrit in 3386 men and women aged 30-74 years participating i... Expand abstract
