ESPEN Guidelines on Clinical nutrition in surgery - Special issues to be revisited

Published:October 13, 2022DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejso.2022.10.002

      Abstract

      The ESPEN Guidelines on Clinical nutrition in Surgery from 2017 has been also available as practical guideline with algorithms since 2021 (www.espen.org). An update will be perfomed in the near future. This review focuses on recent data with regard to special issues and topics to be revisited in the guidelines: These are nutritional assessment, sarcopenic obesity, prehabilitation, oral/enteral immunonutrition, postoperative oral supplementation in hospital and after discharge.
