Abstract

Background and Objective: Hyperglycemia on admission is associated with increased mortality and morbidity in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) irrespective of presence of diabetes mellitus. To the best of our knowledge, no evidence on the relationship between stress hyperglycemia (SH) and the extent of coronary artery disease is found in the literature. Our objective in this study is to assess the relationship of SH with the prognosis of acute coronary syndrome, extent of coronary artery disease (CAD), development of arrhythmia, and major adverse cardiac events.
