Surg Clin North Am. 1984 Aug;64(4):769-78. doi: 10.1016/s0039-6109(16)43393-1.

Abstract

Wound healing is impaired in diabetic patients with infection or hyperglycemia. Several approaches to glucose management are discussed for patients whose diabetic history has been stable and also for those whose diabetic condition is labile or poorly controlled.
