Abstract

Pre-operative nutrition therapy is increasingly recognised as an essential component of surgical care. The present review has been formatted using Simon Sinek's Golden Circle approach to explain 'why' avoiding pre-operative malnutrition and supporting protein anabolism are important goals for the elective surgical patient, 'how' peri-operative malnutrition develops leading in part to a requirement for pre-operative anabolic preparation, and 'what' can be done to avoid pre-operative malnutrition and support anabolism for optimal recovery.
