Increased mean platelet volume in cervicocephalic artery dissections
Irish Journal of Medical Science, 04/13/2012
Kamisli O et al. - Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a marker of platelet function and activation. Increased MPV may be a result of dissection. In addition, it may be a risk factor for dissection-related stroke. Our study supports the notion that platelet reactivity is important in the pathogenesis of the cervicocephalic artery dissections, especially in vertebral artery dissections.
