Perioperative malnutrition has proven to be challenging to define, diagnose, and treat. [] Key Result Discussion led to strong recommendations for implementation of routine preoperative nutrition screening to identify patients in need of preoperative nutrition optimization. Postoperatively, nutrition delivery should be restarted immediately after surgery.

Preoperative nutrition care in Enhanced Recovery After Surgery programs: are we missing an opportunity?
There is an opportunity to improve the reporting of preoperative nutrition care elements within ERAS programs, which will enhance the understanding of how Nutrition care elements influence patient outcomes and experiences.
Perioperative Nutrition: A High-Impact, Low-Risk, Low-Cost Intervention.
The article provides a concise review of the literature evaluating the incidence and surgical outcomes of patients presenting for major surgery with poor nutritional status and assesses the impact of preoperative, perioperative, and postoperative nutritional interventions.
Perioperative Nutrition Care of Orthopedic Surgery Patient
Given malnutrition is associated with increased risk of surgical site infections and increased length of hospital stay, adequate assessment of perioperative risk for malnutrition and preoperative nutrition optimization, including structured weight loss in the obese population, consumption of high protein oral nutritional supplements, immunonutrition oral supplements and adequate glucose control, may improvePerioperative outcomes.
Pre- and Post-Surgical Nutrition for Preservation of Muscle Mass, Strength, and Functionality Following Orthopedic Surgery
The goal of this review is to highlight oral nutrition strategies that can be implemented leading up to and following major surgery to minimize atrophy and the resultant loss of functionality.
Screening, assessment and management of perioperative malnutrition: a survey of UK practice
A survey of Perioperative Medicine Leads highlights areas of practice where perioperative clinicians can improve the assessment and management of patients at nutritional risk prior to elective surgery.
Implementation of an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery Program Can Change Nutrition Care Practice: A Multicenter Experience in Elective Colorectal Surgery
ERAS implementation positively impacted the adoption of standardized perioperative nutrition care practices, and factors that affect compliance to ERAS care elements and short-term postoperative outcomes were identified.
Perioperative frailty: lessons learned and future directions
Emerging evidence suggests that frailty may be mitigated with patient-specific, multidimensional preoperative interventions, thus potentially improving postoperative outcomes in this vulnerable patient population.
Nutrition Care Process of Surgical Patients in the Context of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery
Various nutrition care guidelines for use during preoperative and postoperative periods for surgical patients to enhance recovery after surgery based on a review of the literature are described.
American Society for Enhanced Recovery: Advancing Enhanced Recovery and Perioperative Medicine.
The journal affiliation between American Society for Enhanced Recovery and Anesthesia & Analgesia will enable evidence-based practices to be disseminated widely and swiftly to the practicing perioperative health care professionals so they can be adopted to improve the quality ofperioperative surgical care.

American Society for Enhanced Recovery (ASER) and Perioperative Quality Initiative (POQI) joint consensus statement on perioperative fluid management within an enhanced recovery pathway for colorectal surgery
In the “Perioperative Quality Initiative (POQI) Fluids) workgroup, a framework broadly applicable to the perioperative management of intravenous fluid therapy in patients undergoing elective colorectal surgery within an ERP is developed.
An evidence-based approach to perioperative nutrition support in the elective surgery patient.
In surgical practice, growing evidence supports the beneficial role for implementation of a consistent and literature-based approach to perioperative nutrition therapy.
ESPEN guideline: Clinical nutrition in surgery.
Nutrition adequacy in enhanced recovery after surgery: a single academic center experience.
Preoperative nutrition education, as part of Enhanced Recovery Programs, may be useful to optimize nutrition status before surgery to mitigate clinical consequences associated with undernutrition and empower patients to make adequate food choices for recovery.
Nutritional Status Deteriorates Postoperatively Despite Preoperative Nutritional Support
Background/Aims: The aim of the current study was to assess the postoperative evolution of nutritional status and to relate it with postoperative outcomes. Methods: Demographic, surgical and
Compliance with preoperative oral nutritional supplements in patients at nutritional risk─only a question of will?
Reduced compliance with preoperative nutritional interventions remains a major issue because the expected benefit depends on the actual intake, and 17 potential explanatory parameters, such as upper GI cancer, weight loss, reduced appetite or co-morbidities, did not show any significant correlation with reduced intake of nutritional supplements.
Preoperative albumin and surgical site identify surgical risk for major postoperative complications.
Elective, non-emergent esophageal and pancreatic procedures performed in patients who could have had surgery delayed for preoperative nutrition, but did not, result in higher risk than colon surgery at any given level of serum albumin below 3.25 g/dL.
