Prognostic value of post-procedural mean platelet volume on one-year major cardiac outcomes in ST-elevation myocardial infarction after percutaneous coronary intervention

Abstract

Platelet-induced inflammation may play a critical role in atherothrombosis1, and is thought to be the major cause of unstable coronary syndromes2. STEMI is a major and clinically important event. Platelet activity is a major culprit in contributing to thrombus formation or apposition after coronary plaque rupture3. MPV, a simple and reliable parameter used… (More)
