Evaluation of Mean Platelet Volume in patients with symptomatic and asymptomatic peripheral arterial occlusive disease

Nabil A. Al-zoubi, Nawaf J. Al-Shatnawi.

Abstract
Objective: To measure and evaluate the mean platelet volume in symptomatic and asymptomatic patients with peripheral arterial vascular occlusive disease.
Methodology: In this retrospective study, 70 patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease at King Abdullah University Hospital were studied. 40 patients were symptomatic and 30 patients were asymptomatic. The mean platelet volume was reviewed for each patient.
Results: The mean platelet volume values in patients with symptomatic peripheral arterial occlusive disease were significantly higher than asymptomatic group (10.71fL and 9.72fL, respectively) (p<0.05). There was a positive correlation between mean platelet volume values and symptomatic peripheral vascular occlusive disease.
Conclusion: There is a significant elevation of mean platelet volume in symptomatic peripheral arterial occlusive disease compared to asymptomatic group. There was higher mean platelet volume in patients with atherosclerosis.

Key words: Mean Platelet Volume, Peripheral Arterial Disease, Atherosclerosis, Platelets.
