Prehabilitation and Nutritional Support to Improve Perioperative Outcomes

Prehabilitation and Nutritional Support to Improve Perioperative Outcomes

Studies evaluating exercise and nutrition interventions before elective major surgery in adults are producing encouraging early results, but definitive clinical evidence is currently very limited.

Future research should focus on refining interventions, exploring mechanism, and evaluating the interactions between therapies and large-scale clinical effectiveness studies.

Exercise training before elective adult major surgery is feasible, safe, and efficacious, but the clinical effectiveness remains uncertain.

Early data suggests a reduction in morbidity, length of stay, and quality of life, but the results of larger definitive studies are awaited.
