Aim: The administration of plasma expanders is crucial for managing critically ill patients across a range of clinical conditions, including major surgery, hemorrhagic shock, and trauma. However, the effects of hydroxyethyl starch (HES) on erythrocyte aggregation remain controversial. For this reason, we aimed to investigate the effects of HES 130/0.4, performed renal insufficiency by experimentally unilateral ureteral obstruction, on erythrocyte deformability.
