AIMS Cardiac morbidity and mortality is high in patients undergoing high-risk surgery. This study investigated whether impaired glucose regulation and elevated glycated haemoglobin (HbA(1c)) levels are associated with increased cardiac ischaemic events in vascular surgery patients. METHODS Baseline glucose and HbA(1c) were measured in 401 vascular surgery… CONTINUE READING
