Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Assessing the value of MPV in predicting the severity of preeclampsia, and HELLP syndrome.
STUDY DESIGN:12 women with HELLP syndrome,57 severely preeclamptic,30 mildly preeclamptic, 170 healthy pregnant women were included in this study and their MPV are recorded.
RESULTS: The calculated sensitivity was 53% for mild preeclampsia,77% for severe preeclampsia, and 83% for HELLP syndrome.
CONCLUSION: The measurement of MPV is not enough for diagnosis but can be useful with other sensitive tests.
