Abstract

Cerebral blood flow was measured in four patients with Familial Hypercholesterolemia (three with homozygous and one with heterozygous genotype) before and long after Plasma-Exchange by isotopic technique. Plasma cholesterol dropped by 30% one day after Plasma-Exchange and was still reduced by 27% after one week. Pasma fibrinogen and globulin concentrations were decreased respectively by 36% and 26% after Plasma-Exchange, but returned to pretreatment values within few days. No change was observed in haematocrit. Mean Transit Time (M.T.T.) of both common and internal carotides improved respectively from 39.2±11 and 34.9±10 seconds (M±S.E.) to 33.8±8 (p
