Abstract

Objective: Elevated mean platelet volume (MPV) has been proposed as a risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD) and is associated with poor clinical outcome in acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We aimed to evaluate the association of MPV with presence of coronary collateral vessel (CCV) in patients with ACS.
