Outcome of patients with diabetes and unstable angina. A subgroup analysis in the Spanish Multicentre Trial of trifusal in unstable angina. Grupo de Estudio del Trifusal en la Angina Inestable



International Journal of Cardiology 46(2): 175-178



We analyzed the clinical characteristics of the 58 diabetic and 218 nondiabetic patients enrolled in the Spanish multicentre trial of trifusal in unstable angina. After 6 months of follow-up, 25 suffered from myocardial infarction or death, 10 of which were diabetics (17.2%) and 15 nondiabetics (6.9%) (P = 0.0146). This difference remained significant after multivariate analysis. We conclude that diabetes is an independent predictor of adverse outcome in patients with medically treated unstable angina.
