AIM: </strong> 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. <strong>
METHODS: </strong> 97 anterior STEMI patients successfully revascularizated with PCI between January 2010 and February 2011 are included. MPV on admission is recorded. All patients underwent transthoracic echocardiography within 3 days or before discharge. Patients were divided into two groups according to left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), as systolic dysfunction (LVEF < 50%, 1st group) and normal systolic functions (LVEF > 50%, 2nd group). The 1st group included 61 (47 males) patients and the 2nd group included 36 (35 males) patients. <strong>
RESULTS: </strong> MPV was; 9.5+/-1.1 femtoliter (fL) in the 1st and 8.8+/-0.8 fL in the second group. The difference between the groups was significant (p = 0.001). There was a significant difference in the Troponin I levels and white blood cell (WBC) counts on admission between two groups (30+/-29 vs 12.2+/-15.1 ng/mL, p = 0.001 and 12.3+/-3.8 vs 10.6+/-3.4 counts ×109/L, p = 0.027, respectively). <strong>
CONCLUSIONS: </strong> In anterior STEMI patients treated with percutaneous coronary intervention, increased MPV on admission is associated with impairment in left ventricular systolic function.
