Abstract

Aim: This study aimed to analyze the relationship among platelet number, mean platelet volume (MPV), C-reactive protein (CRP), and mortality in patients with ischemic stroke who admitted to Okmeydani Training and Research Hospital Emergency Department with cerebrovascular disease between January and July 2016. The most commonly encountered neurological disease is cerebrovascular disease. Of the cerebrovascular diseases, ischemic stroke has a major importance due to its high mortality and morbidity. It is the third leading cause of death in the world.


Materials and Methods
: This study is a retrospective study that includes 322 patients who admitted to our emergency department with cerebrovascular disease between January and July 2016. Patient information system was searched covering the study period. Information such as age, sex, platelet number, MPV, and CRP levels at first admission were recorded in the study form. Quantitative data were reported as average}standard deviation; categorical data. Quantitative data were reported as average}standard deviation; categorical data were reported as number or percentage. SPSS 10.0 for Windows was used for statistical analysis. A value of p<0.05 was accepted as statistically significant.


Results
: Upon our analysis, we detected significant relationship among the higher age, higher CRP levels, and mortality in patients with ischemic stroke.


Conclusion
: In our study, we detected significant relationship among the higher age, higher CRP levels, and mortality in patients with ischemic stroke similar to the studies in the relevant literature.
