1) Mean platelet volume (MPV), a simple and reliable index of platelet size that correlates with the functional status of platelets, is an emerging risk marker for atherothrombosis.
The patient had no history of bleeding or thrombosis, and results of routine blood cell analyses, including platelet count, mean platelet volume, coagulation indices, and renal function, as well as the physical examination were normal.
1) The 10-part CBC consisted of white blood cell count (WBC), red blood cell count (RBC), hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), red cell distribution width (RDW), platelet count, and mean platelet volume (MPV).
Another recent addition to hematology instrumentation is the graphic display of red cells and platelet volume histograms with related indices such as the red cell distribution width, the red cell morphology index, and the mean platelet volume.
Mean platelet volume was higher in group C than in group B, which was expected because increased platelet volume is a specific feature of pure genetic thrombocytopenia (9).
Although platelet parameters, including the mean platelet volume (MPV) and the platelet distribution width (PDW), have been routinely available to clinicians for some time, their role in the diagnosis and management of patients remains unclear.
