TRUJILLO-MEJIA, Alexander; ZAPATA-CONTRERAS, Lorena; MELO-AGUILAR, Lina Paola  and  GIL-MONTOYA, Leonardo Fabio. Enhancing recovery in pediatric major abdominal surgery: a narrative review of the literature. Rev. colomb. anestesiol. [online]. 2020, vol.48, n.1, pp.30-37.  Epub Feb 28, 2020. ISSN 0120-3347.


Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) programs in adults have positively impacted morbidity, mortality, and healthcare costs. Its effects on the pediatric population is recognized.


To prepare a narrative review on the current evidence of the various strategies within the framework of enhancing recovery after pediatric surgery, in the context of major abdominal surgery.


A search was conducted on the scientific evidence available in databases (Pubmed/Medline, Science Direct, OVID, SciELO), in order to prepare a narrative literature review.


Notwithstanding the limited evidence on the practicality of the ERAS protocols in the pediatric population undergoing major abdominal surgery, better results could be accomplished if these strategies are adopted.
