To understand the mechanisms linking platelets to the risk of coronary artery disease, we investigated the relation between coronary angiographic morphology and platelet indexes--platelet count, mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet-large cell ratio (P-LCR) and platelet distribution width (PDW)--in patients with ischemic heart disease. Eighty-four patients… CONTINUE READING
