Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) level may be positively associated with perioperative glucose level but not with 30-day mortality, and perioperative glucose may predict 30-day mortality linearly and nonlinearly for noncardiac and cardiac procedures, respectively, according to a study published in Diabetes Care.
Researchers performed a retrospective analysis of data from 13,077 individuals who were at least 18…
