Patients with CAD and diabetes mellitus have a better prognosis than patients with CAD and no diabetes mellitus. In acute coronary syndrome patients with an insulin therapy had a better survival than patients with oral antidiabetics. But there is not known wether perioperative therapy with insulin or oral antidiabetics is associated with higher risk for higher perioperative cardiac morbidity and mortality and worse long-term survival.

Diabetes Mellitus Coronary Heart Disease Major Non-cardiac Surgery

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Death and/or major adverse cardiac events [ Time Frame: 12 months after surgery ]

Enrollment: 380
Study Start Date: January 2004
Study Completion Date: August 2010
Primary Completion Date: August 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

Diabetes mellitus is an important risk factor for arteriosclerosis in general and for coronary artery disease. Patients with CAD have a worse prognosis if they have diabetes mellitus. But it is not known whether the treatment of Dm has an influence on mortality or morbidity.

In face of the high number of patients with Dm and the therapeutic consequences this prospective study wants to compare short-time and long-time morbidity in Patients with Dm undergoing major non-vascular surgery. Inclusion criteria are medically treated Dm (insulin or oral antidiabetics) and major non cardiac surgery.

The "normal" perioperative treatment of the study is not changed by the study itself.
