Abstract

Greater fear or distress prior to surgery is associated with a slower and more complicated postoperative
recovery. The main objective of this study is to examine the best evidence of the perioperative pain management in
patients candidated for abdominal surgery comparing the clinical outcomes achieved with the ERAS® protocol to
those achieved with traditional perioperative management. The studies showed that perioperative analgesia was more
effective with ERAS® protocol than with traditional treatments. The key element of the ERAS® protocol is to minimize the
psychophysical stress related to the surgical intervention, through a multimodal and multidisciplinary approach.
