Introduction and objective: Cardiovascular mortality is high in acromegaly. Our aim in this study was to determine the levels of the new cardiovascular marker in active acromegaly patients, the mean platelet volume (MPV) values before and after octreotide acetate long-acting repeatable treatment.Material and methods: Thirty-six patients with active acromegaly who presented at the Endocrinology Department (mean age 46.0±14.0 years and mean BMI: 30.4&...
