BACKGROUND Ischaemic heart disease is mainly caused by atherosclerosis and its complications. Platelets and their activity have an important role in initiation of atherosclerotic lesions and coronary thrombus formation. Larger platelets are enzymatically and metabolically more active and have a higher potential thrombotic ability as compared with smaller platelets. AIMS To study the changes in platelet volume indices and platelet count in ischaemic heart disease and assess their usefulness in… CONTINUE READING
