Abstract

Objectives: To provide an inclusive overview on the applicability of ERAS protocols in geriatric surgeries.

Design: A review study.

Participants: Geriatric patients.

Outcome measures: Objective and patient-reported outcomes during pre-operative, intraoperative, and post-operative periods of surgery.

Results: Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) is recognized as a revolutionary approach to postoperative care, and its importance is particularly prominent in geriatric surgery. The unique challenges caused by age-related factors and comorbidities increase the need for an appropriate approach for increasing the recovery path in elderly surgical patients. The central role of ERAS in the care of geriatric patients as well as the reduction of post-operative complications and length of hospitalization is one of its achievements.

Conclusions: By prioritizing optimal preparation for surgery, initial mobilization, and personalized post-operative pain management, ERAS not only addresses the distinct needs of the elderly but also contributes to a paradigm shift in surgical practices.
