Abstract

Objective: There is an increasing interest in reexamining the relationship between glucose levels and postoperative complications. Threshold levels of HbA(1c) below those currently recommended may be additional indicators of risk for renal and cardiovascular dysfunction. In this study, the authors analyzed the perioperative outcomes of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) operations to evaluate the association of HbA(1c) levels and renal complications.
