To examine the kinetic characteristics of platelet (PLT) destruction and thrombopoiesis by using mean platelet volume (MPV) and platelet distribution width (PDW).
This article was published in the following journal.

To determine whether mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW), and platelet count could be used as determinants of mortality following coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery ...
Platelet distribution width (PDW) and mean platelet volume are markers of platelet activation and have prognostic value in coronary heart diseases, as well as in cancers of solid organs. In this study...
Platelet count is known to be associated with sex, age and mean platelet volume (MPV). Sex and age were proposed for adjustment of platelet count reference intervals, but MPV is currently not used for...
The relations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) exposure with platelet indices remain unclear. Based on the baseline data from the Wuhan-Zhuhai Cohort Study, we used generalized linear model,...
Deep surgical site infection (DSSI) is one of the most serious complications after open induction internal fixation (ORIF) for traumatic limb fractures. In this study, we aimed to investigate the diag...
Coagulation disorders and thrombocytopenia are common in patients with septic shock. Despite the clinical relevance of sepsis-induced thrombocytopenia, few studies have focused on the pred...
The purpose of this study is to identify how the platelet count, complement system and endothelial markers are affected over time, after platelet transfusion in 4 different hematological p...
Thrombocytopenia is diagnosed when platelet count is lower than 150,000 U/L, it is a common hemostatic problem in neonatal intensive care units According to platelets count, it is classifi...
Thrombocytopenia (platelet count < 100,000/mL) occurs in approximately 15% of women with preeclampsia. Neuraxial analgesia is contraindicated in parturients with a coagulopathy; therefore,...
The purpose of this study is to show that a therapeutic platelet transfusion strategy (i.e. platelet transfusion only in case of bleeding) needs minimally a quarter less of transfusions co...
Disorders caused by abnormalities in platelet count or function.
A rare, inherited platelet disorder characterized by a selective deficiency in the number and contents of platelet alpha-granules. It is associated with THROMBOCYTOPENIA, enlarged platelets, and prolonged bleeding time.
The number of PLATELETS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.
Human alloantigens expressed only on platelets, specifically on platelet membrane glycoproteins. These platelet-specific antigens are immunogenic and can result in pathological reactions to transfusion therapy.
Platelet membrane glycoprotein IIb is an integrin alpha subunit that heterodimerizes with INTEGRIN BETA3 to form PLATELET GLYCOPROTEIN GPIIB-IIIA COMPLEX. It is synthesized as a single polypeptide chain which is then postranslationally cleaved and processed into two disulfide-linked subunits of approximately 18 and 110 kDa in size.
