Abstract

Enhanced Recoveries after Surgery (ERAS) programs are an evidence-based multimodal and
multidisciplinary approach to perioperative care for surgical patients. Initially developed in colorectal
surgery, ERAS programs have been generalized to a growing number of surgical specialties. ERAS
protocol implantation resulted in improved clinical outcomes, decreased complication rates and
reduced hospital stay length with significant hospital cost savings moreover; high compliance to
ERAS protocols was associated with increasingly improved outcomes. Reviewing the current
published reports, the aim of this review is to assess the impact of ERAS program implementation
on the hospital cost in colorectal, pancreatic and liver surgery.
