Introduction Some reports have shown increased platelet aggregation and activation in patients with pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH). Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a simple and easy method of assessing platelet function. We aimed to investigate the mean platelet volume levels in patients with atrial septal defect (ASD) and the association between MPV levels and pulmonary artery hypertension.
