BACKGROUND: Since the number of mobile subscribers has significantly increased in recent years, the installation and deployment of Base Transceiver Station (BTS) antennas sending and receiving signals has become common and inevitable in different regions. OBJECTIVE: In this study, we have tried to evaluate the effect of the waves on some immunological and hematological parameters in exposed individuals. In this study, the exposed and non-exposed individuals were used as the test and control groups, respectively...

INTRODUCTION: Current guidelines recommend acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) treatment after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) to reduce thrombotic vein graft occlusion. The optimal dosage of ASA is not known. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty-two patients undergoing elective CABG were randomized to receive either ASA 75mg or 160mg once daily (OD) or 75mg twice daily (BID) after the operation. Platelet function testing was performed before, and one and three months after the operation...

PURPOSE: Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) and diabetic retinopathy (DR) are two major sight-threatening diseases which may lead to neovascular glaucoma (NVG). The aim of this study was to explore the association between platelet parameters and NVG. METHODS: A total of 185 subjects were enrolled for the study from January, 2012 to December, 2015 at the Eye-ENT Hospital of Fudan University. Patients include those with NVG secondary to RVO (RVO group, n = 38), patients with NVG secondary to DR (DR group, n = 47), diabetics mellitus without retinopathy (DM group, n = 52), and healthy individuals (control group, n = 48)...

BACKGROUND: Prevention of a disturbance of the blood vessel allows phlebotomists to collect a blood specimen by venipuncture that will truly mirror the patient condition. This study was aimed to evaluate the impact of repeated fist clenching and maintenance of the fist during blood collection by venipuncture for routine hematology testing. METHODS: Blood were collected from 16 healthy volunteers with two separate sequential procedures, entailing standard venipuncture with hand opened throughout blood collection, or clenching the fist six times before venipuncture and maintaining the fist until completion of blood collection...

BACKGROUND: One of the issues in prostatectomy surgery is bleeding. Although tranexamic acid (TRA) is an antifibrinolytic agent for reducing bleeding, controversies surround its use. OBJECTIVES: In this study, the effect of local administration of TRA on reducing bleeding during prostatectomy surgery was evaluated. METHODS: A total of 186 patients who underwent prostatectomy surgery were assessed in this clinical trial study. Patients were divided randomly into two groups...

OBJECTIVE: Nasal septum deviation may affect cardiopulmonary system. Those effects can be determined via blood tests and Epworth sleepness scale (ESS). In this study, it was aimed to measure mean platelet volume (MPV) and platelet distribution width (PDW) in patients with nasal septum deviation and to assess changes at their levels after septoplasty. Furthermore, it was purposed to document the correlation between ESS score and MPV, PDW levels. METHODS: Eighty-one patients who underwent septoplasty and 50 healthy controls composed the study group...

INTRODUCTION: Gestational diabetes is defined as various degrees of glucose intolerance diagnosed or detected for the first time during pregnancy and is the most common metabolic complication of pregnancy. Early diagnosis and adequate treatment are important to prevent complications. Pre-eclampsia, polyhydramnios, fetalmacrosomia, and operative delivery are some of the complications seen in pregnant women diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM). AIM: The present study was designed to determine whether there was an association between Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) in predicting poor fetal outcome, insulin resistance, neonatal Apgar scores and gestational age for women with GDM...

BACKGROUND: Chronic total occlusion (CTO) in a noninfarct-related artery (non-IRA) is an independent predictor of mortality in non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). Mean platelet volume (MPV) is associated with cardiovascular events in NSTEMI. Little is known about the predictors of non-IRA-CTO in patients with NSTEMI. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the presence of non-IRA-CTO with MPV level in patients with NSTEMI and multivessel coronary artery disease (MVCAD)...

Chronic migraine is a debilitating disorder that has a significant impact on patients and society. Nearly all migraineurs frequently reported light sensitivity during a headache attack. Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) plays an important role in the activation of trigeminal system and migraine pain. To identify the effect of chronic ghrelin treatment on endogenous PACAP and associated symptoms of migraine, an experimental chronic migraine model was induced by intermittent intraperitoneal (i...

Prior studies have shown that the levels of some platelet (PLT) indices were associated with mortality in patients undergoing hemodialysis. We aimed to investigate whether the changes in PLT indices associated with mortality in patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD). A single-center, retrospective observational cohort study was conducted in incident PD patients from 1 January 2006 to 31 December 2012, and followed up until 31 December 2014. Cox proportional hazard models were used to examine the relationships between the levels of PLT indices including PLT, plateletcrit (PCT), mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW), platelet large cell ratio (PLCR), and mortality...

Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) is a rare X-linked recessive disease resulting from variants in the WAS gene, characterized by a triad of immunodeficiency, eczema, and thrombocytopenia. Despite the fact that WAS is traditionally differentiated from immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) by small size of WAS platelets, in practice, microthrombocytopenia may occasionally not be present, and in certain cases, WAS patients exhibit some parallelism to ITP patients. We characterized one patient presenting with the classic form of the disease but increased mean platelet volume...

AIM: To investigate the relationship between inflammatory markers and platelet size in generalized aggressive periodontitis (GAgP). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Periodontal, inflammatory, and platelet indices were compared between 59 GAgP patients and 59 healthy subjects. Gingival biopsies from 5 patients and 5 healthy subjects were examined by immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy. Changes in patient periodontal and platelet indices were re-evaluated at 3 months after periodontal therapy...

INTRODUCTION: Behçet's disease (BD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder with endothelial dysfunction. Ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) is a marker used in the detection of diseases associated with oxidative stress, vascular endothelial cell dysfunction and ischemia. Mean platelet volume (MPV) signifies the platelet function and activity. AIM: To show whether MPV and IMA are useful in revealing the oxidative stress and the risk of thrombosis in patients with BD. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty-six patients with BD and 28 healthy volunteers as a control group over 18 years of age were included in the study...

An increased platelet count is often observed in lung cancer patients. Whether and how the platelets affect cancer progression have yet to be established. The aim of the study was to investigate the involvement of the platelet count and mean platelet volume (MPV) in the prognosis and progression of lung cancer patients. This retrospective study included 146 patients with newly diagnosed primary lung cancer. The platelet count and MPV were measured before invasive diagnostic procedures and treatment. These platelet indices, overall survival of the patients, and tumor metastases for each organ were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Mean platelet volume to platelet count ratio (MPV/P ratio) has been demonstrated to be a predictor of adverse outcome in patients with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). We aimed to assess whether MPV/P ratio is a useful marker to predict long-term prognosis in NSTEMI patients undergoing PCI. Moreover, the prognostic accuracy of MPV/P ratio was compared with MPV and GRACE score. METHODS: In a retrospective cohort study, according to the baseline MPV/P values, 887 consecutive NSTEMI patients undergoing PCI were divided into two groups: the high MPV/P group (n=296, MPV/P ≥0...
