Mean platelet volume:

A useful predictor of ascitic fluid infection in cirrhotic patients? 

Autores: Tanoglu Alpaslan, Karagöz Ergenekon


Dear Editor: We read with great interest the article ‘Mean Platelet Volume is a useful indicator of systemic inflammation in cirrhotic patients with ascitic fluid infection’ by Suvak, et al. The authors concluded that MPV is increased in cirrhotic patients with ascitic fluid infection (AFI) and MPV may be a predictive test in predicting AFI. We would like to thank the authors for their valuable contributions. MPV depicts the size of platelets and is used as a promising marker of platelet activation and function.
