OBJECTIVES Platelet volume has been defined to be a marker that shows thrombocyte activation and function and it is measured as mean platelet volume (MPV). MPV shows the mean volume of circulating thrombocytes and it is one of the routine parameters in complete blood count. Increased thrombocyte volume is associated with thrombocyte activation. PATIENTS AND METHODS This study included 76 patients who were operated on due to fractures of long tubular bones. Patients who had union without any… CONTINUE READING
