Abstract

Given the ever-shorter length of hospital stay after surgical procedures, nowadays it is more important than ever to study interventions that may have an impact on surgical patients' wellbeing. According to the ERAS (Enhanced Recovery After Surgery protocols) program, early feeding must be considered one of the key components to facilitate early recovery while improving outcomes and patients' overall experiences. To date, the international literature has reported that early postoperative feeding compared with traditional (or late) timing is safe; nevertheless, small clinical outcomes effects has been reported, also for recovery of gastrointestinal function. Therefore, the effectiveness of early postoperative feeding to reduce postoperative ileus duration remains still debated.
