BACKGROUND: Current evidence suggests that a higher red blood cell distribution width (RDW) may be associated with increased risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) development. Given that some controversial results have been published, we conducted a systematic review of the current literature along with a comprehensive meta-analysis to evaluate the association between RDW and AF development. METHODS: We performed a systematic search of the literature using electronic databases (PubMed, Ovid, Embase, and Web of Science) to identify studies reporting on the association between RDW and AF development published until June 2016...

OBJECTIVE: Neonatal sepsis is a major cause of mortality in the developing countries. However, with current severity scores and laboratory parameters, predicting outcomes of neonatal sepsis is a serious challenge. Red cell distribution width (RDW) is a readily available pragmatic means to predict outcomes of various comorbidities in adults and children, without causing any additional blood loss. However, its utility in neonates remains unexplored. Hence, the objective of the present study was to evaluate the association of RDW with neonatal sepsis and its role as a predictive marker for mortality...

A quantifiable, quick, inexpensive and reproducible predictor is needed to decide if caustic substance ingestion results in burn regardless of the symptoms. A multicenter cohort study was conducted to investigate the predictive value of red cell distribution width (RDW) in detecting the esophageal burns. The data of 174 patients were retrospectively analyzed. Eleven patients were excluded due to inability to define the substance ingested. Complete blood count (CBC) was taken at admission, and an esophagogastroduodenoscopy was performed within the first 12-24 h in all patients, regardless of their symptoms...

Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-lymphocyte ratio, the systemic immune-inflammation index (SII), and red blood cell distribution width (RDW), have been recognized as promising predictors for histological grade and prognosis in multiple cancer types. However, few investigations illustrated the impacts of sex on the clinical utility of hematologic markers. Patients with primary gliomas were retrospectively reviewed. The association between grade and inflammatory markers by sex were investigated by univariate and multivariate analysis...

Most α-thalassemia cases are caused by deletions of the structural α-globin genes. The degree of microcytosis and hypochromia has been correlated with the number of affected α-globin genes, suggesting a promising role of hematologic parameters as predictive diagnostic tools. However, cut-off points for these parameters to discriminate between the different subtypes of α-thalassemia are yet to be clearly defined. Six hematologic parameters (RBC, Hb, MCV, MCH, MCHC and RDW) were evaluated in 129 cases of deletional α-thalassemia (56 heterozygous α⁺ thalassemia, 36 homozygous α⁺ thalassemia, 29 heterozygous α⁰ thalassemia and 8 cases of Hb H disease)...

OBJECTIVES: Elevated red cell distribution width (RDW) is associated with morbidity and mortality in community-dwelling individuals. Although RDW is traditionally used to diagnose anemia, it may also be a marker of systemic inflammation. Since vitamin D is a potent modulator of inflammatory cytokines our goal was to investigate whether 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels (25OHD) are associated with RDW in non-hospitalized adults. DESIGN: To investigate this association, we conducted a cross-sectional study...
