Enhanced recovery programme

William Wynell-Mayow, Muhammad Zahid Saeed
BACKGROUND: The WHO includes osteoarthritis as a disease of priority, owing to its significant impact on quality of life, and globally increasing prevalence. Hospital budgets are under pressure to ration knee replacements and shorten inpatient stays. Prolonged tourniquet application has been hypothesised to extend recovery through pain and reduced mobility. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 123 elective total knee replacements meeting inclusion criteria took place from July 2015 to October 2017 at the Royal Free Hospital...

INTRODUCTION: Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) programme has been described and practiced for twenty years in the perioperative management of colorectal patients. ERAS is a complex, evidence based strategy which proved to be extremely effective when linked to laparoscopy in reducing morbidity, length of hospital stay, as well as reducing cost of colorectal service. AIMS: We gradually adapted elements of ERAS protocol along with laparoscopy in the colorectal surgical treatment at a county hospital from 2013...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Cesarean section is the most common surgical procedure performed in the world. Postoperative pain management remains a challenge, particularly in a context of enhanced recovery after surgery. Several barriers related to the specific condition of 'postpartum recovery' may prevent application of effective analgesia in this population. The present review focuses on novel approaches of cesarean section postoperative pain assessment, beyond pain-rating intensity, including objective patient-centered recovery parameters...

Traditional yellow maize though contains high kernel carotenoids, the concentration of provitamin A (proA) is quite low (<2 μg/g), compared to recommended level (15 μg/g). It also possesses poor endosperm protein quality due to low concentration of lysine and tryptophan. Natural variant of crtRB1 (β -carotene hydroxylase ) and lcyE ( lycopene- ε -cyclase ) cause significant enhancement of proA concentration, while recessive allele, opaque2 ( o2 ) enhances the level of these amino acids. Development of biofortified maize enriched in proA, lysine and tryptophan thus holds significance in alleviation of micronutrient malnutrition...

BACKGROUND: Enhanced recovery programme (ERP) has been used in our hospital since 2005 for selected colorectal surgeries. Since October 2015, after labelling as GRACE reference centre, we included all patients scheduled for elective colorectal surgery in this programme. We assessed the impact of our labelling on the implementation of ERP. METHODS: Results of our first 100 patients entered in the GRACE database were analyzed: length of stay, complications, readmission, adherence to the protocol...

INTRODUCTION: Although the concept of enhanced recovery after surgery was introduced more than 20 years ago, its implementation in daily practice still remains difficult. RESULTS: This article addresses bottlenecks and barriers to the development of enhanced recovery programme (ERP). Barriers to the implementation are multifactorial and are raised by the different actors of these programmes: surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses, patients. Solutions and steps that must be respected to succeed in introducing ERP in an hospital are proposed...

BACKGROUND: Prehabilitation has been previously shown to be more effective in enhancing postoperative functional capacity than rehabilitation alone. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a weekly supervised exercise session could provide further benefit to our current prehabilition program, when comparing to standard post-surgical rehabilitation. METHODS: A parallel-arm single-blind randomized control trial was conducted in patients scheduled for non-metastatic colorectal cancer resection...

BACKGROUND: Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is widely accepted in current surgical practice due to its positive impact on patient outcomes. The successful implementation of ERAS is challenging and compliance with protocols varies widely. Continual staff education is essential for successful ERAS programmes. Teaching modalities exist, but there remains no agreement regarding the optimal training curriculum or how its effectiveness is assessed. We aimed to draw consensus from an expert panel regarding the successful training and implementation of ERAS...

The aim of this article is to share the experience of how a multi-disciplinary team worked together to develop the nursing role to incorporate the practitioners supporting mobilisation of a patient. The role developed nurses' competence, ensuring that the information and instruction patients received were consistent between therapists and nursing staff, but also supported the Enhanced Recovery Programme (2010). There were issues with the level of therapy support, especially out of hours. The team agreed a vision together, with a solution to the problem on how the mobilisation of patients post-surgery could be achieved...

AIM: Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) programmes and laparoscopic techniques both provide short-term benefits to patients undergoing colorectal cancer surgery. ERAS protocol compliance may improve long-term survival in those undergoing open colorectal resection but as laparoscopic data has not been reported. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the impact of the combination of laparoscopy and ERAS management on 5-year overall survival. METHODS: A dedicated prospectively populated colorectal cancer surgery database was reviewed...

Programmes for Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) accelerate recovery, reduce morbidity, and shorten hospital stay in a wide range of surgical specialties. We established a standardised multimodal ERAS pathway for patients who were being treated by free tissue transfer for head and neck cancer to evaluate its benefit. Our primary outcome was duration of hospital stay, and secondary outcomes included complications, number of days to first mobilisation, and readmission rates. We compared 100 consecutive patients who followed the ERAS programme with a control group of 40 consecutive patients who had free tissue transfer before the ERAS programme was introduced...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Both surgical workload and the age of those patients being considered for radial pulmonary resection are increasing. Enhanced recovery programmes are now well established in most surgical disciplines and are increasingly reported in thoracic procedures. This review will discuss the relevant principles of these programmes as applied to an increasing elderly population. RECENT FINDINGS: Elderly patients undergoing less radial surgical resections without lymphadenectomy have comparable outcomes to those undergoing classical curative treatment...
