Perioperative protocol shortens stay after major gynecologic surgery
from 2minute medicine
This study found that among women undergoing major gynecologic surgeries (cytoreduction, surgical staging, or pelvic organ prolapse surgery), institution of an enhanced recovery protocol resulted in improved post-operative outcomes (shorter duration of stay, substantial cost-savings and no significant differences in post-operative complications). Past studies assessing enhanced recovery protocols have shown similar benefits in patients undergoing other operations, but limited evidence has previously been available to support its application in gynecologic surgery.
