Preoperative single, high-dose methylprednisolone administration improves postoperative outcomes after colonic surgery. Several randomized studies, including major surgeries, assessed various high-dose steroid regimens; however, evidence about the effect of administration of lower doses on postoperative outcomes in colorectal surgery is not available.
