Studies analyzing the impact of visceral fat excess on surgical outcomes after resection for colorectal cancer (CRC) have yielded conflicting results. Visceral obesity (VO) and sarcobesity (SO) have been recently addressed as risk factors for poor short-term results while no data are available for recovery goals after surgery. No data are available on the protective effect of ERAS in VO and SO patients. The aim of this study was to assess clinical implications of computed tomography (CT) assessed VO and SO on surgical and recovery outcomes after minimally invasive resection for CRC before and after ERAS protocol implementation.

Abstract

Studies analyzing the impact of visceral fat excess on surgical outcomes after resection for colorectal cancer (CRC) have yielded conflicting results. Visceral obesity (VO) and sarcobesity (SO) have been recently addressed as risk factors for poor short-term results while no data are available for recovery goals after surgery. No data are available on the protective effect of ERAS in VO and SO patients. The aim of this study was to assess clinical implications of computed tomography (CT) assessed VO and SO on surgical and recovery outcomes after minimally invasive resection for CRC before and after ERAS protocol implementation.
