Abstract Details

Purpose:

Objectives To evaluate the effect of mean platelet volume(MPV) and mean erythrocyte volume(MEV) on diabetic retinopathy in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Setting:

Erzurum Regional Training and Research Hospital, Department of Ophtalmology, Turkey

Methods:

In this study, ocular findings and MPVand MEV alues were retrospectively reviewed in 104 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. The patients were classified into four groups according to ocular findings, as follows: group 1, diabetic patients without diabetic retinopathy (n =70); group 2, diabetic patients with non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (n =64); group 3, diabetic patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (n =58); and group 4, healthy controls (n =100).

Results:

A significant difference was found in MPV values between groups 2 and 4 (P =0.001), between groups 3 and 4 (P =0.001), and between groups 1 and 4 (P =0.002). The three diabetic groups (groups 1, 2, and 3) were compared with each other. While there was a statistically significant difference between groups 1 and 3 (P =0.015), there was no significance between groups 2 and 3 (P =0.46), and between group 1 and 2 (P =0.241). There was no statistically significant difference between the groups in terms of MCV

Conclusions:

In diabetic patients, the risk of retinopathy development increases with higher MPV values. There was no correlation between the development of retinopathy with MCV.
