PP-165 Diagnostic Impact of Neutrophil / Lymphocyte and Platelet / Lymphocyte Ratio on Idiopathic Pericardial Effusion Severity




Background


We aimed to evaluate a relationship between neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) idiopathic pericardial effusion (IPE) severity.




Methods


A total of 107 patients with IPE and 35 controls with healthy volunteers were enrolled in the study. Echocardiography, hemogram and laboratory result data of all the patients were collected.

Results


NLR and PLR were significantly higher in the IPE group [3.30 (1.28-16.84) vs. 2.09 (0.92-3.39); p <0.001, and 171.0 ( 50.4-850.9) vs. 111.81( 50.6-225.4); p <0.001, respectively]. Statistically significant positive correlation were also found between the NLR (r = 0.614, P < 0.001), and PLR (r = 0.512, P < 0.001) severity of IPE. The NLR of >2.95 had 63.55 % sensitivity and 97.14 % specificity for the prediction of IPE, as identified by the ROC curve. The PLR of >144.68 had 59.81 % sensitivity and 82.86% specificity for the prediction of IPE, as identified by the ROC curve.




Conclusion


We found that NLR and PLR were significantly higher in patients with IPE. Our study also showed that NLR and PLR were strongly correlated with idiopathic pericardial effusion severity.
