Mean Platelet Volume Predicts Vascular Access Events in Hemodialysis Patients
AbstractArteriovenous fistula (AVF) and arteriovenous graft (AVG) is the vascular access (VA) of 78% of hemodialysis patients (HD) in France. VA dysfunction corresponding to either stenosis requiring angioplasty or acute thrombosis is responsible for 30% of hospitalizations. Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a biological marker of cardiovascular events. We studied MPV in a cohort of HD patients as a predictive marker of VA dysfunction. We conducted a prospective monocentric cohort study that included patients with AVF or AVG on chronic HD (n = 153). The primary outcome was the incidence of VA dysfunction regarding MPV value. The median MPV was 10.8 fL (7.8–13.5), and four groups were designed according to MPV quartiles. Fifty-four patients experienced the first event of VA dysfunction. The incidence of VA dysfunction was higher in patients with the highest MPV: 59% (23 events), 34% (14 events), 27% (11 events), and 18% (6 events), respectively, for the fourth, third, second, and first quartiles (p = 0.001). Multivariate analysis confirmed an independent association between MPV and VA dysfunction—OR 1.52 (1.13–2.07), p < 0.001. VA dysfunction is predicted by MPV level. Patients with the highest MPV have the highest risk of VA events. View Full-Text
