    Abstract : Aims: the aims of the thesis were: - To investigate the prognostic influence of diabetes on short- and long-term mortality after an episode of unstable coronary disease - To evaluate the association between glycometabolic parameters on admission and during hospitalization and the 2 year mortality risk among diabetic patients with unstable coronary disease - To investigate the influence of diabetes on treatment and outcome in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) - To determine long-term morbidity and mortality after hospitalization for unstable coronary disease in patients with and without diabetes Diabetes was associated with higher mortality: We investigated an unselected series of 4,341 patients with unstable angina or non-Q-wave myocardial infarction, of which 722 (17%) had diabetes. Diabetes was associated with increased mortality during initial hospitalization (10. READ MORE
