Abstract

Obstructive coronary artery disease is a common cause of morbidity and mortality among patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). Previous research has demonstrated that the clinical sequelae of coronary artery disease remains the most common cause of death in this population. As a result numerous observational studies and randomised clinical trials have evaluated the timing and mode of coronary artery revascularisation within this population. In this review, we survey the currently available data informing the indications and optimal method of coronary revascularisation for diabetic patients.
