Özet

Purpose: Mean platelet volume (MPV) is an indicator of platelet activation, which is a central process in the pathophysiology of coronary heart disease. Metabolic syndrome (MS) may lead to worsened left ventricular systolic function by causing recurrent thrombotic events and by aggravating systemic inflammation in the course of acute myocardial infarction. The present study was designed to investigate the relationship between MPV and left ventricular systolic function in patients with metabolic syndrome who had first ST-elevation myocardial infarction.
