The calf blood flow and the ankle blood pressure at rest and during post ischemic reactive hyperemia were measured by an airfield rubber segment plethysmograph in 5 patients with hyper viscosity of the blood. The patients had no signs of peripheral arterial disease. A normal flow and pressure pattern was obtained. It is concluded that hyper viscosity does not contribute significantly to the peripheral resistance during reactive hyperemia in the patients studied. The importance of hyper viscosity for peripheral resistance in patients with atherosclerosis obliterans is discussed.
