Post operative clinical nutrition

Abstract:
Clinical Nutrition for Surgical Patients begins with a thorough review of the basics of medical nutrition therapy for surgical patients, including nutritional assessment, the role of surgical diets, and the indications and contraindications for specialized nutrition support. Early oral feeding is the preferred mode of nutrition for surgical patients. Avoidance of any nutritional therapy bears the risk of underfeeding during the postoperative course after major surgery. Considering that malnutrition and underfeeding are risk factors for postoperative complications, early enteral feeding is especially relevant for any surgical patient at nutritional risk, especially for those undergoing upper gastrointestinal surgery. The focus of this guideline is to cover nutritional aspects of the Enhanced Re-covery After Surgery (ERAS) concept and the special nutritional needs of patients undergoing major surgery, e.g. for cancer, and of those developing severe complications despite best perioperative care.
