Diabetes is acknowledged to Increase morbidity and mortality after coronary revascularization. A total of 128 patients who underwent angioplasty from 1995-1999, 60 diabetics and 68 non-diabetics, were studied. Predominant is the male gender; mean age was between 58-59 years. Mean duration of Diabetes Mellitus was 8 years. Diabetics were found to be smokers with concomitant hypercholosterolemia and hypertension. Non-diabetics were noted to be obese and hypertensive. Both the diabetic and non-diabetic groups had predominantly one vessel involvement. Mean Ejection Fraction (EF) of 57% in diabetes and 59% in non-diabetics were evident in this study. Furthermore, diabetics were found to be in the NYHA FC 11on admission while non-diabetics were in the NYHA FC I. Complication rate of 40% was noted in the DM group whereas 24% of such rate was found in the non-DM group. The case success rate was 95% in the DM group and 96% in the non-DM group (p=NS). 3 patients (5%) in the DM and 3 cases (4%) in the non-DM group died during hospitalization. Over-all major adverse cardiac events were not different between the two groups (16% vs 8% p=NS).
