Özet

Background: Mean platelet volume (MPV), platecrit, and platelet distribution width (PDW) are markers of platelet activation. Previous studies have found that platelet activation occurs in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension. Platelet indices including MPV, PDW, and platecrit have not been studied in children with congenital heart disease associated pulmonary arterial hypertension (APAH-CHD) who survived and those who died.
