Abstract

Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) has been adopted by many centres and across whole healthcare systems. The results have shown significant reductions in length of stay and postoperative complications. However, there has been very little change in these factors and mortality in emergency surgery. Can we learn from principles of ERAS for emergency abdominal surgery?
