OBJECTIVE The impact of admission serum glucose (SG) level on outcomes in coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery is unknown. The present study sought to determine whether elevated admission SG level is associated with adverse outcomes following CABG surgery. METHODS Patients undergoing CABG surgery between January 2000 and December 2005 at a single centre were identified (n=2856). Admission SG levels of less than 9.2 mmol/L and 9.2 mmol/L or greater were chosen to divide patients into… CONTINUE READING
