The MPV, PDW, and P-LCR were significantly increased as the intensity of smoking increases, as shown in Table 3.
In our study, cigarette smoking in healthy men was accompanied by significant effects on platelet indices, such as increase in the mean MPV and PDW values in comparison with nonsmokers, which were also pronounced in heavy smokers along with increase in P-LCR.
En la figura 2 se observa la correlacion directa entre el P-LCR y el VPM.
En los resultados obtenidos con respecto a los diagnosticos clinicos mas comunes, comparados con las variables del plaquetograma, no se hallaron diferencias estadisticas significativas, pero se observo que el P-LCR es mayor en los pacientes con infeccion y menor en aquellos con cancer; mientras que el ADP fue similar en todas las entidades.
El ADP y el VPM se hallaron con diferencia estadisticamente significativa (p = 0,041 y p = 0,036, respectivamente), al compararlos con la microcitosis de los eritrocitos en la poblacion estudiada (rango de VCM entre 54,5 y 71 fL), y pese a la significancia estadistica, al relacionar la microcitosis con las otras variables del plaquetograma como es el P-LCR, no se observa significancia estadistica.
P-LCR reflects platelet larger cell ratio with larger platelets being more reactive and contribute to vaso-occlusive events in patients, especially with dyslipidaemia and thus P-LCR may be used as an indicator of risk factor for thromboembolic ischemic events.
Future studies including the use of MPV, PDW and P-LCR as a cost effective tool in a risk stratification to predict acute coronary events as well as the response to medical interventions are worthy of consideration.
