Aim: In our study, we prospectively compared mean platelet volume values along with other metabolic parameters in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients according to whether they have a previous diagnosis of coronary artery disease and aimed to reveal the relation between development of coronary artery disease and mean platelet volume.
Material and Methods: Type 2 diabetes mellitus patients who admitted outpatient clinics of diabetes and internal medicine at Kayseri Training and Research Hospital and outpatient clinic of cardiology at Kahramanmaras Necip Fazil City Hospital were included. These patients were evaluated for if they have a previous diagnosis of coronary artery disease or not. Patients whom didn’t have diagnosis of CAD were grouped as Group 1, and patients whom have previous diagnosis of CAD were grouped as Group 2.
Results: Mean platelet volume, which was the main parameter of our study, was found 8.78±1.45 fl in Group 1 and 9.99±1.16 fl in Group 2. These values between the two groups were statistically significant (p
