  Purpose

The aim of this retrospective observational study is to determine the impact of preoperative nutritional status on postoperative outcome. Elective surgical patients were screened with Bio-Impedance-Analysis, Malnutritional Universal Screening Tool, and other variables for body composition. Outcome parameters were collected by patient chart review.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase-angle [ Time Frame: preoperative ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • body weight [ Time Frame: preoperative ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • body mass index (BMI) [ Time Frame: preoperative ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • preoperative weight loss [ Time Frame: 3 month weight loss before operation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • hip/waist ratio [ Time Frame: preoperative ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool (MUST) [ Time Frame: preoperative ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The MUST is recommended by ESPEN as the preferred screening tool for patients in the community (Kondrup J et al., Clinical Nutrition 2003; 22: 415-421)

  • postoperative complications [ Time Frame: postoperative ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Clavien-Dindo Classification of Surgical Complications (Dindo D., Demartines N., Clavien P.A.; Ann Surg. 2004; 244: 931-937)

  • Length of hospital stay [ Time Frame: participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
