Abstract

Key PointsQuestionAre the complications after colorectal surgery frequent and are the complications associated with Enhanced Recovery After Surgery protocols? FindingsIn this cohort study of 2084 patients, 566 patients presented with moderate to severe complications. Patients receiving care at a facility that had greater adherence to the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery items had a lower number of postoperative complications, regardless of whether the center had an established Enhanced Recovery After Surgery protocol. MeaningAn increase in adherence to the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery protocol appeared to be associated with a decrease in postoperative complications; thus, a high adherence rate to the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery protocol is recommended in the management of care for patients undergoing colorectal surgery.
