Abstract: Aim & Objective:
Enhanced recovery pathways are well-defined perioperative evidence based interventions in a protocol manner for standardising techniques involved in drug selection, dose, reduce cost and facilitate in early discharge by monitoring mortality rates. The hypothesis of the study is the application of enhanced recovery pathway after surgery in abdominal wall reconstruction could result in potential decrease in hospital stay.
Methods: The study is performed in the period of February 2017 to June2019 and a total of 100 cases and 100 controls undergoing abdominal wall reconstruction were included. Enhanced recovery pathway after surgery is used to identify the results with respect to duration of the stay.
Results: It was observed from the study results that, there was no change noted in the duration of stay and regular diet. The readmission rate is decreased and in analysis of subgroups we found, factors associated with duration of the stay were < 5 days with hernia.
Conclusion: To conclude, administration of enhanced recovery pathways after surgery could not show a limitation in duration of stay. It was obviously noted that quality of baseline life scores, less operative times and small hernia defects were in co-ordination with duration of stay.
