Aim: It is whether MPV, Plt and MPV / Plt values of admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) diseases can be used as a diagnostic factor in diagnosis or not.
Material and Method: MPV, Plt, MPV/PLT ratios of 70 patients with AIS diagnosis and 45 healthy control groups were recorded retrospectively between 2013-2014.
Results: No gender or age difference between the groups was detected. MPV / Plt ratio was significantly higher in the patient group (p <0.05). Although Plt and MPV values were different in two groups, it was not statistically different (p> 0.05). There was no statistically significant difference in terms of specificity and sensitivity.
Conclusion: It is considered that high MPV / Plt ratios among the hematological values of AIS patients supports the diagnosis.
