IntroductionDisorders in the blood�s hemostatic system, the excessive platelet aggregation and a lack of proper platelet functioning are connected to the occurrences and advances in cardiovascular disease.. Thus, the current study focused on evaluating the platelet index response of professional soccer players to a simulated soccer training session.Material and MethodThe participants of this study were 10 professional soccer players with an average age of (21±5). The subjects were present at a sports physiology lab to perform the sports protocol and control sessions in two separate periods. The applied protocol consisted of a 46 minutes and 11 seconds of simulated soccer session performed on a treadmill. During each session, the blood samples were taken from the participants (before, precisely after and 30 minutes after the activity). To compare the average parameters, an ANOVA with repeated measures 3�2 was used at P<0.05.ResultsThe statistical analysis showed significant differences in PLT (p=0.0001), MVP (p=0.001) and PCT (p=0.004), while no significant difference observed in the PDW. ConclusionBecause platelets have a pivotal role in the hemostasis of blood in healthy and ill people, intense aerobic exercise leads to an increase in the platelet count, the mean platelet volume and plateletcrit. Because of this and due to the platelet aggregation, obstruction resulting from thrombosis can increase.
