    Mean Platelet Volume/Platelet Count Ratio and Culprit Plaque Morphologies: An Optical Coherence Tomography Study in Patients with ST Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction

    This study aimed to investigate the predictive value of mean platelet volume/platelet count ratio (MPR) for coronary plaque features in patients with ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). A total of 275 STEMI patients undergoing preintervention optical coherence tomography examination were included, with 142 categorized as plaque rupture (PR) and 133 as plaque erosion (PE). Multivariable logistic regression showed higher MPR was an independent predictor of PR (tertile 3 vs tertile 1, odds ratio: 6.257, 95% confidence interval: 1.586–24.686, P = 0.009). MPR showed better diagnostic performance than other platelet indices. The optimal MPR threshold ...
