The relationship between coronary artery disease (CAD) and diabetes is widely documented [1–3], and diabetic patients present a worse CV outcome in respect to nondiabetic patients .
Recently, the physiopathology of CV risk in patients affected by undiagnosed or newly detected diabetes is matter of great interest [5, 6].
Actually, the prevalence of diabetes in CAD patients is not clearly estimated because diagnosis is generally based on not exhaustive criteria, such as history of diabetes or hyperglycemia during acute events.
We aimed to evaluate the true prevalence of diabetes in nonacute patients affected by CAD, as assessed by coronary angiography.
Six hundred and seventy nine patients admitted from November 2008 to November 2009 in the Cardiology Ward of University of Naples to perform angiography for suspect CAD were assessed for eligibility.
Patients with coronary acute events in the last 4 week and subjects without angiographically detectable CAD were excluded. Moreover, tr ...
