Enhanced recovery after surgery in emergency colorectal surgery: Review of literature and current practices.

World J Gastrointest Surg 2019 Feb;11(2):41-52

Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery, Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Bangkok 10700, Thailand.

Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS), a multidisciplinary program designed to minimize stress response to surgery and promote the recovery of organ function, has become a standard of perioperative care for elective colorectal surgery. In an elective setting, ERAS program has consistently been shown to decrease postoperative complication, reduce length of hospital stay, shorten convalescence, and lower healthcare cost. Recently, there is emerging evidence that ERAS program can be safely and effectively applied to patients with emergency colorectal conditions such as acute colonic obstruction and intraabdominal infection.

Antibiotics in Uncomplicated Acute Diverticulitis: To Give or Not to Give?

Inflamm Intest Dis 2018 Dec 20;3(2):75-79. Epub 2018 Jul 20.

Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, East Bay Center for Digestive Health, Oakland, California, USA.

Acute uncomplicated diverticulitis (AUD) is generally felt to be caused by obstruction and inflammation of a colonic diverticulum and occurs in about 4-5% of patients with diverticulosis. The cornerstone of AUD treatment has conventionally been antibiotic therapy, but with a paradigm shift in the underlying pathogenesis of the disease from bacterial infection to more of an inflammatory process, as well as concerns about antibiotic overuse, this dogma has recently been questioned. We will review emerging data that supports more selective antibiotic use in this population, as well as newer guidelines that advocate this position as well. Read More
