Brief Answer: Yes, extraction should not be done. Detailed Answer: Hello, Drcons thank you for consulting with XXXXXXX This is Dr. Dipti Singh here to answer your query. Mean platelet volume of 5.9 is low. It is a contraindication for extraction as it can cause excessive bleeding and other complications. You need to be evaluated and get MPV level treated first before going for extraction. Regards Dr. Dipti Singh
