Purpose Postoperative ileus (POI) is the most common complication of elective colon resection. Coffee or caffeine has been reported to be useful in improving gastrointestinal function after abdominal surgery. This study aimed to investigate the effect of coffee/caffeine on POI in patients undergoing elective colorectal surgery. Methods We searched Cochrane library, Embase, PubMed, and (until July 2021) to identify randomized controlled trials (RCTs) evaluating the effect of… 


Effect of postoperative coffee consumption on gastrointestinal function after abdominal surgery: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
Postoperative coffee consumption is effective and safe for enhancing the recovery of gastrointestinal function after abdominal surgery and increased with increasing complexity of the procedure.
Does Coffee Intake Reduce Postoperative Ileus After Laparoscopic Elective Colorectal Surgery?: A Prospective, Randomized Controlled Study: The Coffee Study.
Coffee intake after elective laparoscopic colorectal resection leads to faster recovery of bowel function and represents a simple and effective strategy to prevent postoperative ileus.
Does caffeine enhance bowel recovery after elective colorectal resection? A prospective double-blinded randomized clinical trial
Caffeine consumption following colectomy is safe, leads to a significantly shorter time to first bowel movement, and may thus potentially lead to a shorter postoperative hospital stay, according to a single-centered, prospective, randomized controlled, double blinded clinical trial.
Effect of Coffee on the Length of Postoperative Ileus After Elective Laparoscopic Left-Sided Colectomy: A Randomized, Prospective Single-Center Study
Caffeine consumption after colectomy was safe and in the decaffeinated group associated with a reduced time to first bowel action and caffeine is not a main ingredient affecting the length of postoperative ileus.
Effect of Caffeine Intake on Postoperative Ileus: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
The administration of coffee as a postoperative ileus prevention measure can change the way postoperative enhanced recovery is applied and currently available literature demonstrates a significant improvement in gastrointestinal motility without having any impact on postoperative morbidity.
The Impact of Sham Feeding with Chewing Gum on Postoperative Ileus Following Colorectal Surgery: a Meta-Analysis of Randomised Controlled Trials
The use of chewing gum after colorectal surgery is a safe and effective intervention in reducing the incidence of POI and merits routine use alongside other ERAS pathways in the postoperative setting.
Risk factors for prolonged ileus following colon surgery
Prolonged ileus is a common condition following colon resection, with an incidence of 12.7 %.
Defining Postoperative Ileus: Results of a Systematic Review and Global Survey
Standardised endpoints for use in future studies to facilitate objective comparison of competing interventions are proposed to clarify terminology of POI and propose concise, clinically quantifiable definitions.
Coffee, Caffeine, and Health Outcomes: An Umbrella Review.
Findings indicate that coffee can be part of a healthful diet and associated with a probable decreased risk of Parkinson's disease and type-2 diabetes and an increased risk of pregnancy loss.
Randomized clinical trial on the effect of coffee on postoperative ileus following elective colectomy
It was postulated that coffee intake would decrease postoperative ileus after colectomy after abdominal surgery, but this was not found to be the case.
