- Brief summaryThis study aims to clarify the hypothesized benefits of fast track surgery in the bariatric surgery population. Fast track has been proven to be a safe and effective method to reduce the postoperative recovery time in other surgical fields (mainly colorectal). A steep increase in the prevalence of morbid obesity in the Dutch population accumulated with the fact that bariatric surgery is currently the only long term effective solution for this problem warrants more standardized care from our hospital in order to comply with the increasing volume of patients. In our hospital we have begun implementing elements of the Fast Track programme since 2011. This has led to a drastic decrease in admission duration from about 5 to 2 days. The current standard of care in bariatric procedures is excellent in comparison to international data, with a low mortality and morbidity rate. But observational studies investigating the role of fast track in bariatric surgical programmes hint that there may still be merit to gain. However, currently there is no scientific evidence available to strengthen this hypothesis due to the lack of blinded randomized trials in the bariatric subpopulation.
