AbstractOBJECTIVE. To determine the impact of diabetes on early and mid-term survival in the Hong Kong Chinese population undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery. DESIGN. Prospective study. SETTING. Regional hospital, Hong Kong. PATIENTS. A total of 904 consecutive patients following coronary artery bypass graft surgery from November 1999 to December 2003 were prospectively analysed. Among them, 377 (42%) diabetic and 527 (58%) non-diabetic patients were evaluated. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES. Hospital mortality, mid-term mortality, and percutaneous coronary intervention-free survival. RESULTS. The diabetic group had a higher risk score than the non-diabetic group (mean+/-standard deviation: EuroSCORE 4.7+/-3.4 and 3.6+/-3.4, respectively; P CONCLUSIONS. Diabetes mellitus was not a predictor of early and mid-term mortality after coronary artery bypass graft surgery in our Chinese population. Furthermore, diabetes did not affect angina recurrence or intervention free-survival up to 4 years.
