Background: Mean platelet volume (MPV) is an indicator of platelet activation which is a central process in the pathophysiology of coronary heart disease. The metabolic syndrome (MS) is characterized as the clustering of closely associated and interdependent atherosclerotic risk factors. MS has also been shown to be strongly associated with poor outcome in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). The present study was designed to investigate MPV values in patients MS and to interrogate the association with CAD.
