Özet

It is known that mean platelet volume (MPV) increases during acute coronary syndrome. However, there are conflicting data about the importance of MPV in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD). This study aimed to assess relationship between MVP and the severity of coronary atherosclerosis in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM), stable CAD and normal left ventricular ejection fractions.
