Zhen Wang, Jun-Qiang Chen, Jin-Lu Liu, Lei Tian
BACKGROUND: Early diagnosis of acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) based on clinical judgment has been proved to be too difficult. Therefore, it is important for identifying clinical parameters that can differentiate AMI from other acute abdomen upon presentation. METHODS: We analyzed a database of 106 consecutive patients admitted to the emergency ward for suspected AMI in whom diagnosis of AMI was confirmed by laparotomy, CT angiography or mesenteric angiography. The patients' demographics, previous history, clinical signs, results of laboratory investigations and ultrasonography were collected...

OBJECTIVES: Our aim was to investigate platelets (PLT) and their indices - mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW) and plateletcrit (PCT) - in the differential diagnosis of benign and malignant thyroid disorders. BACKGROUND: Platelet and platelet indices recently started to be defined as an useful clinical marker in cancer patients. Their higher reproducibility rates and low cost provide them a wide range of usage. MATERIAL AND METHODS: One-hundred and sixty patients were divided into three groups retrospectively...

This meta-analysis aimed to explore the effectiveness of partial spleen arterial embolization (PSAE) in the treatment of hypersplenism secondary to hepatic cirrhosis. PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, Wan Fang, CNKI, Vip, and CBM databases were searched for randomized controlled trials, cohort studies, and case-control studies that compared PSAE with splenectomy in the treatment of hypersplenism secondary to hepatic cirrhosis from their inception to July 25, 2015. Statistical analysis was conducted in Cochrane Network RevMan v5...

Raymond Farah, Nava Samra
BACKGROUND: Mean platelets volume (MPV) is a marker, which indicates platelet function, and is a potential link between inflammation and thrombosis. Previous studies have found a relation between high MPV levels and high risk of stroke. Another factor that has been associated with the risk of stroke is neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR). Several studies have reported an association between increased NLR and increased risk of cerebrovascular disease. It was found that NLR levels have a relation to the prognosis as well...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with increased risk of thromboembolic complications. One of the markers of the increased risk of hypercoagulable state is platelet hyperreactivity. The aim of the study was to assess impact of arrhythmia on platelet reactivity. METHODS: The study included 36 (mean age 48,3; range 21-60) male patients with lone atrial fibrillation, with exclusion of concomitant diseases known to trigger hypercoagulable state. The AF patients underwent cardioversion to restore sinus rhythm and were subsequently under observation for 1month...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the risk factors for neonatal pulmonary hemorrhage (NPH) in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of a municipal hospital, and to provide a basis for the early identification and treatment of NPH. METHODS: A total of 112 neonates who were admitted to the NICU of Shaoyang Central Hospital of Hunan Province and diagnosed with NPH were enrolled as the case group. A nested case-control method was used to select, as a control group (n=224), the neonates who underwent the treatment with an assisted mechanical ventilator and did not experience pulmonary hemorrhage...

BACKGROUND: A study performed in 2007 comparing the evaluation procedures used in European external quality assessment schemes (EQAS) for hemoglobin and leukocyte concentrations showed that acceptance criteria vary widely. For this reason, the Hematology working group from the European Organisation for External Quality Assurance Providers in Laboratory Medicine (EQALM) decided to perform a statistical study with the aim of establishing appropriate acceptance limits (AL) allowing harmonization between the evaluation procedures of European EQAS organizers...

BACKGROUND: It has been established a strong association between the red cell distribution width (RDW) and mean platelet volume (MPV) with hypertension in non-pregnant patients. However, few studies have been performed in patients with preeclampsia, yielding inconsistent results. Our aim is to evaluate the relationship between RDW and MPV with the severity of preeclampsia. METHODS: Analytic cross-sectional study. We include 64 patients with preeclampsia (26 mild, 38 severe) and 70 patients with normotensive pregnancy...

INTRODUCTION AND AIM: Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR), mean platelet volume (MPV), red cell distribution width (RDW) and plateletcrit (PCT) have all been recognized as systemic inflammatory response (SIR) markers. Our aim was to evaluate changes in NLR, PLR, RDW, MPV and PCT in preeclampsia and their use in predicting the severity of PE. STUDY DESIGN: This retrospective cohort study included 219 patients. Of them, 27 had mild PE, 82 had severe PE, and 110 were healthy, normotensive pregnant patients...

Mean platelet volume (MPV) is increased in various cardiovascular diseases. We sought to determine the prognostic value of MPV for hypertension. We performed a retrospective cohort study. Baseline characteristics were measured in 9168 individuals without hypertension, and the follow-up period was 9 years. Hypertension was confirmed in 2881 participants during the follow-up period. When the participants were grouped according to MPV quartiles, the hazard ratio of future hypertension gradually increased across the MPV quartiles...

INTRODUCTION: Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic inflammatory disease where assessment of disease activity is essential for management of patient. Currently, many composite scoring systems are used for evaluation of disease activity but they are mainly clinical-based. As several haematological parameters are altered due to systemic inflammatory process in RA, this study was intended to evaluate role of common haematological parameters to assess disease activity in RA. AIM: To find out the association of disease activity of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) with platelet count, Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) and Haemoglobin (Hb) level so that these cost-effective haematological parameters can be used as additional factors to assess disease activity...

OBJECTIVE: Morning blood pressure (BP) surge (MBPS) is defined as an excessive increase in the morning BP from the lowest systolic BP during sleep and is reported as a risk factor for cardiovascular events in current clinical studies. In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between MBPS and carotid intima-media thickness (C-IMT) in prehypertensive patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We evaluated the association between the rate of BP variation derived from ambulatory BP monitoring and C-IMT in patients with prehypertension...

BACKGROUND: At present, liquid conserved platelets (PLTs) can only be stored at 22°C for up to 5 days. Waste of outdated PLTs and short supply of fresh PLTs were both seen in blood banks. Lyophilized PLTs were considered as one of the candidate replacements for liquid conserved PLTs. It is important to evaluate the function before it can be used in clinical trial. METHODS: In this study, an in vitro platelet transfusion model was established to evaluate the function of rehydrated lyophilized platelets (RLPs) by thromboelastography (TEG)...

The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW), platelet count (PC) and erectile dysfunction (ED). We searched for observational studies from PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science and CNKI up to 31 March 2016. Two reviewers independently selected the studies and extracted the data. MPV, PDW, and PC and mean differences in these platelet indices between healthy subjects and ED patients were explored using the Comprehensive Meta-Analysis software package...

PURPOSE: We determined whether hypoxia parameters are associated with C-reactive protein (CRP), mean platelet volume (MPV), white matter hyperintensity (WMH), and the severity of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and also evaluated whether hypoxia parameters, CRP, MPV, and WMH differ in patients with similar apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) scores. METHODS: A total of 297 patients, who were evaluated using polysomnography, were assessed retrospectively. The measured hypoxia parameters included total sleep time with oxygen saturation <90% (ST90), percentage of cumulative time with oxygen saturation <90% (CT90), and lowest oxygen saturation (min SaO2)...
