Preoperative Nutritional Support in Esophagectomy or Pancreaticoduodenectomy
Preoperative Nutritional Support Reduces Postoperative Stay and Incidence of Complications in Patients Undergoing an Esophagectomy or Pancreaticoduodenectomy
We are proposing to evaluate the benefit of preoperative nutritional support with Impact Advanced Recovery in the most vulnerable group of elective gastrointestinal surgery patients who may experience a complication, esophagus and pancreas resections, and hypothesize that oral supplementation with 3 servings (0.75 L) Impact Advanced Recovery will reduce postoperative stay by 10-20% and reduce the incidence of major complications by 25%.
