OBJECTIVES Increased platelet activation plays an important role in the development of atherosclerosis. Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a determinant of platelet activation. In our study, we aimed to determine whether MPV levels are elevated in non-dipper patients compared with dippers and healthy controls. In addition, we tried to find out if MPV levels are correlated with blood pressure measurements in hypertensive patients. METHODS This cross-sectional study included 56 hypertensive patients… CONTINUE READING
