BACKGROUND Elevated admission glucose level is a strong predictor of short-term adverse outcome in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). However, the prognostic value of diabetic control (ie, hemoglobin A(1c) levels) in patients with ACS is still undefined. HYPOTHESIS Hemoglobin A(1c) level may predict short-term outcome in patients with ACS. METHODS We conducted a retrospective study with prospective follow-up in 317 diabetic patients with ACS. Patients were stratified into 2 groups… CONTINUE READING
