Metformin for the Management of Peri-operative Hyperglycemia

James Paul, Russell Brown
Perioperative hyperglycemia is an all too common issue (incidence 20-40%) associated with significant surgical morbidity and mortality [1]. Often defined as a blood glucose >11.1mmol/L, peri-operative hyperglycemia increases the risk for developing costly surgical site infections, sepsis, impairs wound healing, promotes endothelial dysfunction, thrombus formation, myocardial ischemia, stroke, neurocognitive dysfunction, prolongs length of hospitalization, and even death [2-7].
