ABSTRACT
This article discusses controlled defibrination in the treatment of peripheral vascular disease. The two principal determinants of blood viscosity are the concentration of the red cells and the plasma fibrinogen. Therefore a reduction in blood viscosity could be expected from either hemodilution or a decrease in plasma fibrinogen. Although hemodilution has occasionally been advocated as an effective therapeutic procedure in both coronary and peripheral circulatory inefficiency, it is inevitably accompanied by a decrease in the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood.
