OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study is to evaluate in a retrospective manner the diagnostic value of mean platelet volume (MPV) in pancreatic adenocarcinomas and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 92 patients, who were admitted for pancreatic adenocarcinoma (n=76) and PNET (n=16) between March 2007 and December 2009, were analyzed retrospectively for demographics and clinical information. RESULTS Thirty-nine patients (51.3%) had a resectable… CONTINUE READING
