Cite item

Full Text


The review gives the results of large clinical studies of the prognostic value of hyperglycemia in patients with acute coronary syndrome and discusses the basic mechanisms determining the increased cardiovascular risk. The advantages of invasive treatment policy are also described in diabetic patients with an exacerbation of coronary heart disease.
