Özet

Background/aim: Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is an innovative approach to the treatment of aortic stenosis (AS) as an alternative to surgery in high-risk patients. Mean platelet volume (MPV) is considered an indicator of endothelial dysfunction, platelet function, and activation. In this study, we aimed to investigate MPV changes in patients undergoing TAVI.
