Aims: Evaluation of the relationship among mean platelet volume (MPV) and endogenous sex hormones and cardiovascular (CV) risk parameters Methods: We designed a retrospective study in postmenopausal women. Patient charts were reviewed for the results of mean platelet volume, hormonal and biochemical parameters. Results: MPV correlated only with white blood cell and platelet counts(r = -0.270, p = 0.023) and platelet count (r = -0.558, p = 0.001). There was no statistically significant difference in MPV of patients with and without metabolic syndrome. Conclusion: There was no relationship between MPV and endogenous sex hormones and parameters indicating higher CV risk.
