We found few cases (18) with low platelet count
on automated analyser which were normal when counted manually.
 concluded that reduced concentration of estrogen may be the probable cause for low platelet count
in postmenopausal women.
Influence of age, sex and ethnicity on platelet count
in five Italian geographic isolates: mild thrombocytopenia may be physiological.
* Warfarin should not be used until the platelet count
has recovered to the normal range.
A STUDY that characterized the occurrence and frequency of thrombocytopenia throughout the course of pregnancy found a significant decline in platelet counts
during pregnancy, and significant differences between pregnant and nonpregnant women.
Reese, Ph.D., from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, and colleagues examined platelet counts
throughout pregnancy in 7,351 women who delivered between 2011 and 2014.
According to the company, the patients with thrombocytopenia typically receive platelet transfusions immediately prior to a procedure to increase the platelet count
. The platelets (thrombocytes) are colorless cells produced in the bone marrow that help form blood clots in the vascular system and prevent bleeding.
A cut-off value of 201 for the platelet count
was highly statistically significant (p<0.001) with an optimal combination of sensitivity (97%) and specificity (56%) (Table-2, Figure-2).
Laboratory tests also showed that his platelet count
was low and got lower the next day.
The aim of this study was to investigate the association of the preoperative platelet count
and postoperative clinical outcomes following EH in patients without portal hypertension, splenomegaly, or cirrhosis.
Laboratory findings were as follows (Table 1): the white blood cell count was 6,300/[micro]L (86.5% neutrophils and 7.5% lymphocytes), hemoglobin was 8.7g/dL, reticulocyte count was 9.3 x [10.sup.4]/[micro]L (3.5%), and platelet count
was 0.8 x [10.sup.4]/[micro]L (10.5% immature platelets).
There is growing evidence to suggest that an increased platelet count
may act as an indicator to underlying pathology [2, 3].
