- InterventionsThis intervention consists of 1) a preoperative outward patient clinical optimization period (three times a week for 4-6 weeks), 2) a three week clinical rehabilitation period starting at four days after surgery and a subsequent four week outward patient clinical rehabilitation period (two times a week). During each phase, patients will regularly visit a physical therapist, a dietician and a psychologist to optimize general health and receive advices with regard to lifestyle management. Non-elective patients are starting with the second phase of the intervention.
- Primary outcomeThis study will mainly evaluate post-operative complications (infections, stroke, and heart rhythm problems), duration at the intensive care unit, hospital stay and mortality.
- Secondary outcomeSecondary, psychophysical parameters (e.g. delirium, post-operative cognitive decline, disability free survival, quality of life, physical fitness, labor participation, and life style) will be evaluated.
- TimepointsThere are five timepoints. The first two measurements (four to seven weeks before surgery (T0) and in the last week before surgery (T1) are baseline measurements and evaluate the preoperative outward patient phase in elective patients. The three measurements after surgery (four days after surgery (T2), at the end of the post-operative clinical phase (T3) and at the end of the post-operative outward patient phase (T4) will evaluate the two post-operative phases. A follow up measurement (T5) is performed after three to four months.
