Mean platelet volume and long-term cardiovascular outcomes in patients with stable coronary artery disease.

08:00 EDT 31st August 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Mean platelet volume and long-term cardiovascular outcomes in patients with stable coronary artery disease."

Although an elevated mean platelet volume (MPV) has been associated with poor clinical outcomes after acute coronary syndrome (ACS), the association between MPV and long-term outcomes in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) remains uncertain. We aimed to investigate the impact of pre-procedural MPV levels in patients following elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
