Abstract

Hyperglycemia is common and associated with increased mortality rates in patients hospitalised with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). This statement aims to:

  • summarise the current state of knowledge regarding the link between elevated glucose and patient outcomes with acute coronary syndromes (ACS)
  • outline the most important knowledge gaps in this field
  • provide consensus recommendations for hyperglycemia management in patients with ACS on the basis of the available data.
