Abstract

Aims/Introduction: Admission hyperglycemia is associated with poor outcome in patients with myocardial infarction. The present study evaluated the relationship between admission glucose level and other clinical variables in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Materials and Methods: The 959 consecutive STEMI patients undergoing primary PCI were divided into five groups based on admission glucose levels of
