Mean platelet volume (MPV) has been proposed as a marker of platelet reactivity and cardiovascular disease. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) significantly favors the occurrence of cardiovascular events, by increasing the circulating levels of a wide spectrum of pro-oxidant and pro-thrombotic mediators. However, opposite alterations of platelet function, both enhanced aggregability and increased bleeding diathesis have been reported in these patients, with contrasting results on the effects of renal function on MPV and coronary artery disease, that were assessed in present study.

Abstract

Mean platelet volume (MPV) has been proposed as a marker of platelet reactivity and cardiovascular disease. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) significantly favors the occurrence of cardiovascular events, by increasing the circulating levels of a wide spectrum of pro-oxidant and pro-thrombotic mediators. However, opposite alterations of platelet function, both enhanced aggregability and increased bleeding diathesis have been reported in these patients, with contrasting results on the effects of renal function on MPV and coronary artery disease, that were assessed in present study.
