Aim: Mean platelet volume (MPV) is considered a new indicator of atherosclerosis. Activated platelets and subclinical inflammation predispose to create for atherosclerotic heart disease. Larger platelets are metabolically more active than smaller ones and have more protrombotic potential. We have recently demonstrated that MPV levels in HashimotoÂ’s patients tend to be higher than healthy controls even if in euthyroid state. In present study we aimed to investigate a relat...
