ABSTRACT
Physiological and pathophysiological aspects of systemic and cardiac haemodynamics are reviewed with appraisal of Carl J. Wiggers merits and contributions to the research and developments in this field and his early recognition of the significance of the flow properties of blood in impaired circulation. Pharmacological agents involved in treatment of peripheral vascular diseases are discussed with special regard to the haemorheologically active xanthine derivative pentoxifylline. The profile of pentoxifylline as it emerges from experimental pharmacological and clinical studies is presented paying special attention to the haemorheological properties of the drug. Pharmacokinetic features of pentoxifylline are surveyed touching absorption, blood levels, metabolism and excretion aspects. Basing on the available data pentoxifylline is regarded as a promising drug in the treatment of circulatory ischemic disorders, especially in intermittent claudication.

    In most arteriopathic patients, the release of a transitory ischemia in the affected limb reduces blood flow, instead of increasing it as in normal subjects. In this study the effects of propranolol administration on this paradoxical response have been investigated. After rheographic tracings...

    It has been demonstrated that, in most arteriopathic patients, vasodilators induce the vascular steal phenomenon, i.e. the shunting of blood from the ischemic to the normally perfused areas. It is conceivable, therefore, that vasoconstrictors may improve in the opposite way, reducing the blood...

    Pentoxifylline (PF), known to increase red blood cell (RBC) deformability, has recently attracted much attention because of its possible effect of reducing capillary resistance. There has been practically no reliable demonstration of an increase in capillary blood flow by this drug. This study...

    Hindbrain isehemia was induced by bilateral vertebral artery occlusion and moderate hypotension in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs). Mean arterial blood pressure was lowered to 80 mmHg in SHRs and to SO mmHg in Wistar- Kyoto rats (WKYs) by a controlled hemorrhage, and then the vertebral...
