Mean platelet volume that rises over time after percutaneous coronary intervention may be linked to mortality risk, according to a study in The American Journal of Cardiology. Researchers who examined data on 1,512 patients found mortality was significantly higher among the patients whose MPV rose over time, compared with those whose MPV levels dropped or were stable. "Monitoring the MPV after coronary revascularization might play a role in risk stratification," researchers wrote.
