Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of stress hyperglycemia and its association with mortality among hepatopancreatobiliary postoperative patients admitted. Methods: Retrospectively analysis was made on 706 cases of the hepatopancreatobiliary postoperative patients from three Grade A hospitals in Hunan province from November 2011 to June 2012, including the incidence and risk factors of patients with stress hyperglycemia. Results: The incidence of stress
... stress hyperglycemia of pancreatic postoperative patients was 34.28%. The incidence of pancreatic surgery, simple cholecystectomy and biliary tract and liver surgery in patients with stress hyperglycemia was 63.08%, 20.83% and 32.21%, respectively. Stress hyperglycemia was associated with the first postoperative glucose values, duration of surgery, whether the anemia and the presence or absence of hypoproteinemia (P<0.05), but was no related with sex, weight and previous history (P>0.05). Conclusion: Stress hyperglycemia is common among emergency admissions and these patients have significantly higher mortality rate compared to other patients (P=0.001). Postoperative first blood glucose levels, duration of surgery, whether the anemia and the presence or absence of hypoproteinemia were stress hyperglycemia risk factors for patients.
