Glucose Variability and Mortality in Patients Hospitalized With Acute Myocardial Infarction
Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, 08/03/2012
Lipska KJ et al. – Although greater GV is associated with increased risk of in–hospital mortality in patients with AMI in unadjusted analyses, glucose variability (GV) is no longer independently predictive after controlling for multiple patient factors, including mean BG. These findings suggest that GV does not provide additional prognostic value above and beyond already recognized risk factors for mortality during acute myocardial infarction (AMI).
