Platelets play a role in the pathogenesis of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). We assessed the relationship between mean platelet volume (MPV) on admission and pre- and postinterventional flow with the infarct-related artery (IRA) in patients with STEMI. We prospectively included 840 patients with STEMI who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The patients were divided into 3 groups according to MPV tertiles. Pre- and post-PCI Thrombolysis In Myocardial… CONTINUE READING
