To evaluate the mean platelet volume (MPV) and the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR )in patients with branch retinal vein occlusion.
Haydarpaşa Numune Training and Research Hospital,Istanbul,Turkey
Thirty patients with recently diagnosed branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO group) and 27 age and sex matched subjects (controlgroup) were included in the study. MPV and NLR parameters obtained from peripheral blood were recorded. All patients in both groups had hypertension that was under control by medication. The difference of MPV and NLR between two groups was evaluated by independent samples t test.
The mean age of the BRVO group was 62.6 ±12.3 years and the control group was 63.5±8.2 years.The BRVO group consisted of 13 male and 17 female patients and the control group included 12 male and 15 female subjects.There was not a statistical significant difference between groups with regard to age and sex. The mean MPV was 8.64 ±2.01 fL in the BRVO group and 8.5±1.26 fL in the control group.The mean NLR in the BRVO and control group was 2.24 ±0.79 and 1.89±0.64, respectively.The difference between two groups in terms of MPV and NLR was not statistically significant (p=0.1and p=0.3, respectively).
Mean platelet volume and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio were found to be not affected in branch retinal vein occlusion patients.
