Abstract

Several hemorheologic and plasma proteic features were analyzed in workers exposed to acoustic defilement. Whole-blood viscosity was significantly increased (at every shear-rate considered) in patients with severe sensorineural hearing impairment; whereas plasma, serum and relative viscosity remained unchanged. These variations were independent of erythrocyte deformability and aggregation, and of plasma fibrinogen levels, resulted indeed in the normal range. On the contrary plasma fibronectin was significantly increased in patients with sensorineural hearing impairment, suggesting a microvascular endothelial damage in these subjects. The exposition to acoustic defilement during work activity may be considered as aetiological factor for the development and progression of sensorineural hearing impairment, and more extensively for the occurrence of cardiovascular complications.
