AIMS/HYPOTHESIS Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) has been reported to be a risk marker of morbidity and mortality for cardiovascular disease in various study populations. However, no studies have investigated the relationship between RDW and diabetes complications. We therefore evaluated RDW as a marker of macrovascular and microvascular(More)
AIMS Peri-operative hyperglycemia is a risk factor for postoperative morbidity and mortality. However, the role of specific glycemic targets in reducing this risk has not been defined, particularly among patients with diabetes. Thus, our objective was to conduct a meta-analysis relating distinct peri-operative glycemic targets and postoperative outcomes in(More)
