Abstract

Objectives: Mean platelet volume (MPV) is assosiated with platelet function and activation. Increased MPV values indicate elevated platelet functions and are assosiated with inflammation. We investigated postoperative MPV changes of the patients with osteoarthritis (OA) after total hip arthroplasty.
