entGlycemic control has been found to improve clinical outcomes following Coronary Bypass
Surgery. This study tests the hypothesis that obtaining tighter glycemic
control(80-120mg/dl) as opposed to more moderate control (120-180mg/dl) will further improve
150 diabetic patients will be randomized to achieve aggressive glycemic control
(80-120mg/dl) vs moderate control (120-180mg/dl) using intravenous insulin infusions
beginning at anesthetic induction and continuing for 18 hours following surgery.
- All diabetic patients undergoing Coronary Bypass Surgery
- Patients with hepatic and renal failure
