Comparison of platelet volume indices in acute coronary syndrome

Keywords: Acute coronary syndromes, mean platelet volume, platelet distribution width, platelet volume indices

Abstract

Aim: To compare the parameters showing the platelet volume index in unstable angina pectoris (USAP), non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (non-STEMI) and ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).

Methods: The platelet volume indices of 94 USAP, 161 non-STEMI and 86 STEMI cases with a total of 341 patients (245 men, 96 women) were compared. The patients between March 2015 and October 2018 who admitted to Bolu Abant İzzet Baysal University Hospital with the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome were compared using platelet distribution width (PDW), PDW to platelet ratio (PPR), mean platelet volume (MPV), MPV to platelet ratio (MPR).

Results: No significant difference was found between the 3 groups in terms of PDW (p = 0.26), PPR (p = 0.87), MPV (p = 0.41) and MPR (p = 0.78) values.

Conclusion: In our study, there was no statistically significant difference between the types of acute coronary syndrome and platelet volume indices.
