BACKGROUND/AIM: It is not known why cerebrovascular and cardiovascular ischaemic events are less frequently observed in heterozygous beta thalassaemia (HBT) patients than in the general population. However, we previously reported that serum levels of some platelet function markers, i.e. soluble CD40 ligand and soluble P-selectin, are lower in patients with HBT than in controls. A high mean platelet volume (MPV) is an indicator of in vivo platelet activation and may indicate a tendency to thrombosis...

OBJECTIVES: Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP) is the most widespread systemic vasculitis during childhood. Gastrointestinal tract retention and gastrointestinal bleeding are among its major complications. Neutrophil-Lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) are indicators related to inflammatory diseases. This study evaluated the relationship between NLR or PLR and gastrointestinal bleeding in HSP. METHODS: The study consisted of 119 patients and 40 healthy children in the same age group...

AIM: The aim of this study was to compare thyroid function and complete blood count parameters in pregnant women with versus without gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). METHODS: A total of 269 pregnant women patients with (n = 110, GDM group) or without (n = 159, non-GDM group) GDM were included in this study. Data on age, rate of cesarean section, birthweight of neonate, hemogram, and thyroid function tests were collected. Multivariate analysis was performed to determine factors predicting increased risk of GDM...

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a low grade systemic inflammatory disease in which many inflammatory mediators are known to be elevated in the peripheric blood. Blood platelet lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and mean platelet volume (MPV) are accepted as novel markers in many of the systemic inflammatory disorders, but have not been investigated in synovitis-free radiographic OA yet.The aim of this study was to evaluate the levels of blood PLR and MPV in radiographic hip OA. A total of 880 patients were evaluated retrospectively and after certain exclusion criteria, 237 of them who have primary hip OA were included...

BACKGROUND: Morbidity and mortality rates due to cardiovascular diseases are more common in acromegalic patients than the healthy population. Platelets play a significant role in both the onset and progression of clotting which then cause the development of atherosclerotic plaques. Increased mean platelet volume (MPV) is an indicator of platelet activation and known as an independent risk factor for atherosclerotic processes. The aim of this study was to compare MPV levels between acromegalic and non-acromegalic patients...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, research regarding mean platelet volume (MPV) has been expanded to numerous diseases. The aim of the present study was to assess whether MPV could reflect disease activity of adult patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: A total of 128 adult patients with SLE were enrolled in the present study and allocated into two subgroups (99 with active phase and 29 with inactive phase) according to SLE disease activity index (SLEDAI)...

BACKGROUND: Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is a common autoimmune disorder. Genetic, environmental, and immunological factors all play a role in the pathogenesis of HT, but the effects of lymphocytes and platelets on the pathophysiology of HT are still unknown. In this study, we evaluated the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and mean platelet volume (MPV) in HT groups and HT subgroups with low cardiovascular risks. METHODS: This study included 92 patients with HT and 38 control subjects...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the prognostic value of mean platelet volume (MPV) on admission for the in-hospital mortality in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). METHODS: Medical records of 567 AMI patients were retrospectively reviewed, and their baseline clinical and laboratory characteristics were extracted. The relationships between the MPV and both clinical and laboratory characteristics were analyzed. The predictive value of the MPV for in-hospital death was estimated using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis and a multivariate logistic regression model...

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a systemic inflammatory disease associated with cardiovascular consequences. Red blood cell distribution width (RDW), mean platelet volume (MPV), and platelet distribution width (PDW) are recognized biomarkers of cardiovascular morbidity/mortality. Limited data is available on the association between these parameters and OSAS severity and the relationship with positive airway pressure therapy (PAP). In this prospective study of male OSAS patients we analyzed hematological data in order to evaluate their value in predicting OSAS severity, the relationship with sleep parameters, and their behavior under PAP...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the prognostic value of the combination of preoperative platelet count (PLT) and mean platelet volume (MPV) in patients with primary operable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We retrospectively analysed data from 546 patients with NSCLC who underwent complete resection at our institution from 2006 to 2010. Patients' clinical characteristics and laboratory test data at initial diagnosis were collected. Both preoperative PLT and MPV (COP-MPV) were calculated on the basis of the data obtained using the recommended cut-off values of 300 × 109 L-1 and 11...

PURPOSE: To test the splenic blood flow change after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of the spleen in a porcine experimental model. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Six pigs underwent RFA of the spleen via laparotomy. During the procedure of RFA, clamping of splenic artery (one) and both splenic artery/vein (one) was also performed. Measurement of blood flow of both splenic artery (SA) and splenic vein (SV) with flow-wire at pre- and post-RFA of the spleen was also performed...

OBJECTIVES: The authors' aim was to investigate whether serum neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio might be used as a predictive biomarker to help differentiate active from inactive chronic otitis media (COM). METHODS: Two hundred fifty-nine patients having inactive COM received tympanoplasty without mastoidectomy and were identified as Group 1. On the other hand, 254 patients having active COM received tympanoplasty with mastoidectomy and were identified as Group 2. Routine hemogram tests were performed preoperatively for both the groups...

The prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC)with main portal vein(MPV)and/or the inferior vena cava(IVC)tumor thrombi is dismal. The management of HCC with severe tumor thrombus is complicated. In this study, we report a case of HCC with tumor thrombi in the MPV and IVC that was successfullytreated via liver resection and perioperative hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy(HAI). A 68-year-old man was referred to our institution to treat huge HCC lesion in the right lobe of the liver. Abdominal computed tomography(CT)revealed a tumor(12 cm in diameter)in the right hepatic lobe and tumor thrombi in the MPV and IVC...

Objective: To evaluate mouthpiece ventilation (MPV) in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) who are noncompliant with noninvasive ventilation (NIV). Methods: We evaluated four young patients with DMD who had previously refused to undergo NIV. Each patient was reassessed and encouraged to try MPV. Results: The four patients tolerated MPV well and were compliant with NIV at home. MPV proved to be preferable and more comfortable than NIV with any other type of interface...

OBJECTIVE: Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is commonly encountered in patients with cryptogenic stroke. Mean platelet volume (MPV), an indicator of platelet reactivity, has been reported in recent trials to be higher in patients with PFO than in normal population. The aim of this study was to investigate whether there is a difference in MPV between patients with PFO and stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) and that of patients with asymptomatic PFO. METHODS: Patients with PFO who were younger than 55 years of age were enrolled in this retrospective study...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the changes of complete blood count (CBC) parameters during pregnancy and establish appropriate reference intervals for healthy pregnant women. METHODS: Healthy pregnant women took the blood tests at all trimesters. All blood samples were processed on Sysmex XE-2100. The following CBC parameters were analyzed: red blood cell count (RBC), hemoglobin (Hb), hematocrit (Hct), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), red blood cell distribution width (RDW), platelet count (PLT), mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW), white blood cell count (WBC), and leukocyte differential count...
