Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Inflammation is associated with an increased risk of thrombotic events and complete blood count (CBC) is an easily measured test. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the value of CBC relative parameters including mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), mean platelet volume-to-lymphocyte ratio (MPVLR), and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) for patients with acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

A total of 115 patients with unprovoked DVT of the lower extremities and 105 controls were recruited in this study. Blood samples were drawn from all participants to obtain the concentrations of CBCs and D-dimers.

RESULTS:

MPVs (P = 0.044), PLRs (P = 0.005), MPVLRs (P = 0.001), and NLRs (P < 0.0001) were significantly higher in acute DVT patients compared to controls. The MPV was inversely correlated with platelet count (P < 0.0001) and the NLR was positively associated with D-dimers (P = 0.002) and the PLR (P < 0.0001). Notably, on multivariate logistic regression analysis, NLRs and D-dimers were independent risk factors of acute DVT (OR: 1.889, P = 0.024; OR: 1.009, P < 0.0001, respectively).

CONCLUSIONS:

MPV, PLR, MPVLR, and NLR have potential diagnostic values for patients with unprovoked DVT. NLR is an independent risk factor related to DVT.
