ABSTRACT
The authors reflect on a study, conducted by G.Y. Gandhi and colleagues, which focuses on the effect of intraoperative intensive insulin therapy (IIT) on morbidity and mortality in patients having cardiac surgery. The authors note that the randomized controlled trial (RCT) by Gandhi and colleagues failed to show any benefit of IIT in patients of cardiac surgery. They view that for internists and endocrinologists, the study by Gandhi and colleagues does not affect practice.
