Abstract

To determine the effect of glucose-insulin-potassium infusion on circulating levels of free fatty acids in the setting of contemporary management of ST-elevation myocardial infarction, we randomly assigned 20 patients who were undergoing primary angioplasty to glucose-insulin-potassium infusion or to standard care. Treatment with glucose-insulin-potassium was associated with significantly lower levels of free fatty acid after 24 hours compared with standard care.
