Abstract
Impaired sympathovagal balance, the main pathophysiological mechanism under the vasovagal syncope (VVS), may play a role on platelet sizes. Although it has been shown that mean platelet volume (MPV) is increased in patients with vasovagal syncope, its nature in syncope subgroups is unknown. Herein, we aimed to compare MPV values among patients with different head-upright tilt-table (HUTT) test results. Patients who underwent HUTT test were analyzed retrospectively. Patients demographic data and their complete blood count samples within the 24h of test were obtained from hospital data network. Patients were divided into 4 groups according to their HUTT test resul...
