Aims: To investigate the effectiveness and safety of Fast-Track Surgery (FTS) in the management of bariatric patients.
Methods: A prospective analysis of 80 patients undergoing bariatric surgery from September 2016 to September 2017 was randomly divided into FTS group (40 cases) and non-FTS group (40 cases). The FTS group was managed using FTS protocols while the Non-FTS group was managed traditionally. The operation, post-operative recovery, pain score, stress index and nutritional status of the two groups were compared.
Results: Compared, FTS group showed the length of postoperative hospital stay (3.3 ± 1.2d vs. 5.0 ± 2.4d, p <0.05), nasogastric tube indwelling time (0.05 ± 0.22 d vs. 1.18 ± 0.59 d, p<0.05) and the time of flatus (1.88 ± 0.69d vs. 2.50 ± 0.72d, p<0.05) were all lower than the Non-FTS group (p<0.05), while the postoperative albumin, prealbumin were higher in FTS group (p<0.05). There were no significant differences in post-operative pain and stress index between the two groups.
Conclusion: The management of bariatric patients using FTS protocols can shorten the length of hospital stay and accelerate post-operative recovery. It is safe and reliable and worth popularizing in practice.
