Jacober SJ, Sowers JR. An Update on Perioperative Management of Diabetes. Arch Intern Med. 1999;159(20):2405–2411. doi:https://doi.org/10.1001/archinte.159.20.2405
Surgery in the patient with diabetes mellitus is relatively common, as the numbers of persons with diabetes is increasing and diabetes predisposes to medical conditions that require surgical intervention. An estimated 25% of diabetic patients will require surgery, and advances in perioperative care of these patients allow them to safely undergo the most complicated surgical procedures. We will review issues of preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative care of diabetic patients.
