The impact of enhanced recovery protocol compliance on elective colorectal cancer resection: Results from an international registry
posted by WM Admin on 15 May 2015
In this study, the authors used international, multicenter ERAS registry data (Nov 2008 - Mar 2013) to investigate the impact of specific patient factors and ERAS protocol compliance on postoperative outcome after elective primary colorectal cancer resection.
"Laparoscopic surgery was associated with reduced complications... and length of stay .... Increasing ERAS compliance was correlated with fewer complications ... and shorter primary hospital admission .... Shorter hospital stay was associated with preoperative carbohydrate and fluid loading .., and totally intravenous anesthesia ...; longer stay was associated with intraoperative epidural analgesia .... Reduced postoperative complications were associated with restrictive perioperative intravenous fluids".
