Abstract

AIMS: It is unclear whether detection of prediabetes (pre-DM) by routine assessment of glycated haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and fasting plasma glucose (FPG) among patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with contemporary drug-eluting stents (DES) may help identify subjects with increased event risk. We assessed the relation between glycaemia status and one-year outcome after PCI. METHODS AND RESULTS: Glycaemia status was determined in 2,362 non-diabetic BIO-RESORT participants, treated at all four study sites, to identify pre-DM (HbA1c 42-47 mmol/mol; FPG 6.1-6.9 mmol/L) and unknown diabetes mellitus (DM) (HbA1c ≥48 mmol/mol; FPG ≥7.0 mmol/L). Another 624 patients had medica..
