Mean platelet volume may not be a predictive marker for adverse prognosis in patients with acute ischemic stroke


      • Standardization of mean platelet volume measurement has not been achieved until today.
      • Mean platelet volume values should not be used for diagnosis and prognosis.
      • Mean platelet volume may not be a prognostic marker in acute ischemic stroke.
