Özet

Background: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a proliferative vitreoretinopathy resulting from vascular defect of the retina. The present study evaluates platelets, which are involved in VEGF storage, transport and release, and their functions with regard to the prognosis of the disease. The objective was to suggest a simple minimal invasive method that will facilitate the management of the disease and help clinicians in predicting the prognosis.
