Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between tinnitus and mean platelet volume (MPV).

Materials and Methods: 40 subjects with tinnitus and 40 healthy subjects as control group with no evidence of ear pathology or cardiovascular diseases were included in the study. The evaluation of the subjects included a detailed history, otorhinolaryngological examination, assessment of laboratory blood parameters, MPV, platelet distribution width (PDW) and platelet count (PC). Then the subjects were compared.

Results: The groups were similar in terms of age and gender (p=0.068, p=0.649). The mean MPV values in tinnitus group and control group were similar (p=0.522). Also, the mean PDW and PC values in tinnitus group and control group were similar (p=0.311, p=0.402).

Conclusion: We found that there was no significant difference in MPV values of patients with tinnitus compared to the control group. MPV values alone do not seem to play a major role in the pathogenesis of tinnitus.
