3. Enhanced Recovery After Surgery in Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology: A Pilot Study

      Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) protocols optimize perioperative care by utilizing concepts including preoperative counseling and limited fasting, early postoperative enteral intake and mobilization, opioid-sparing analgesia, and limited use of intravenous fluids (IVF) and surgical drains. ERAS has been successfully implemented in adult gynecology, adult and pediatric colorectal and urologic surgery with reduction in length of hospital stay (LOS), narcotic use, complications, and improvement in patient satisfaction. There are no studies evaluating the use of ERAS in pediatric and adolescent gynecology (PAG). The aim of this study is to review safety, patient satisfaction, and decreased opioid use in PAG patients undergoing intra-abdominal gynecologic surgery while cared for under this pilot ERAS protocol.
