Objective: Our aim was to conduct an up-to-date systematic review of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) to determine the benefits and harms of enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) programme in bariatric surgery. Methods: MEDLINE, Embase, PubMed, CINAHL and the Cochrane Library were searched for RCTs on ERAS versus standard care (SC) until April 2020. The primary endpoint was the length of hospital stay (LOS). Results: Five RCTs included a total of 610 procedures. ERAS adoption is capable of significantly reducing LOS (MD of − 0.51; 95% CI − 0.92 to − 0.10; P = 0.01) and postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) (OR 0.42; 95% CI 0.19 to 0.95; P = 0.04). No significant differences in terms of adverse events and readmissions. Conclusions: The implementation of ERAS in bariatric surgery produces a significant reduction in LOS and PONV.

Abstract

Objective: Our aim was to conduct an up-to-date systematic review of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) to determine the benefits and harms of enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) programme in bariatric surgery. Methods: MEDLINE, Embase, PubMed, CINAHL and the Cochrane Library were searched for RCTs on ERAS versus standard care (SC) until April 2020. The primary endpoint was the length of hospital stay (LOS). Results: Five RCTs included a total of 610 procedures. ERAS adoption is capable of significantly reducing LOS (MD of − 0.51; 95% CI − 0.92 to − 0.10; P = 0.01) and postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) (OR 0.42; 95% CI 0.19 to 0.95; P = 0.04). No significant differences in terms of adverse events and readmissions. Conclusions: The implementation of ERAS in bariatric surgery produces a significant reduction in LOS and PONV.
