Özet

Objective: Ischaemia-reperfusion (IR) injury is a chain of events put in place by tissue ischaemia. Reperfusion following the cellular damage causes an active inflammatory response. Erythrocyte deformability and plasma viscosity play a critical role in tissue and organ perfusion. In this study we aimed to evaluate the effect of levosimendan and nigella sativa on erythrocyte deformability during myocardial IR injury in rats.
