Platelet indices in patients of acute coronary syndrome patients in tertiary care hospital
Acute coronary syndromes (ACS) encompass a spectrum of coronary artery disease, from unstable angina to transmural myocardial infarction. Despite the developments regarding its diagnosis and treatment in recent years, acute coronary syndromes (ACS) keep its place of the most important reason of morbidity and mortality. The frequency of ACS is increasing as the population ages, and therefore, knowledge of knowing who are at high risk is essential. Aim was to study Mean Platelet Volume and Platelet Count of acute coronary syndrome (STEMI, NSTEMI, Unstable Angina) patients. The present one year cross-sectional study was done in the Department of Medicine and Cardiology, KLES Dr. Prabhakar Kore Hospital and Medical Research Centre, Belgaum. A total of 400 patients of age more than 18 years who presented with Acute Coronary Syndromes were included in the study. Patients were subjected to clinical examination, necessary investigations including Complete Haemogram, platelet count, electrocardiogram and Mean Platelet Volume and Troponin-I/ck-mb the following observations were made. Result of the study revealed that majority of the patients were males (75.5%). The male to female ratio was 3.08:1. In the present study majority of the patients were MI patients (75.75%). In the present study majority of the patients were non hypertensives (60.5%). Hypertensives to non hypertensives ratio was 1.53:1. In the present study majority of the patients were diabetics (60.5%). Diabetics to non diabetic’s ratio was 1.77:1. In the present study majority of the patients were
