Özet

OBJECTIVE: The exact pathophysiology of meconium passage into the amniotic fluid is unknown, but it is frequently associated with fetal hypoxia. The mean platelet volume (MPV) seems to be a marker of platelet production and consumption and may be related to the severity of some diseases associated with bone marrow, hypoxia, and perinatal infections. We aimed to investigate the association between MPV levels and meconium-stained amniotic fluid (MSAF) in infants.
