Abstract

AIM: In ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients, mean platelet volume (MPV) is associated with infarct related artery patency both before and after reperfusion. In anterior STEMI patients successfully treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), the relationship between left ventricular (LV) function and MPV on admission is unknown.
