OBJECTIVE An increased mean platelet volume (MPV), as an indicator of larger, more reactive platelets resulting from an increased platelet turnover, may represent a risk factor for overall vascular mortality, including myocardial infarction. We intended to identify patients at higher risk of dying from vascular disease in a large, hospital-based cohort. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 206 554 first-ever admissions to the Allgemeines Krankenhaus Wien for determination of MPV between January… CONTINUE READING
