Elective colorectal resection how to hasten the recovery

Elective Colorectal Resection – How to Hasten the Recovery?

Dr. Lily Ng

RHTSK


Background

Background

  • Elective colorectal resection is common operation in general Surgery

  • Laparoscopic / Laparoscopic-assisted resection was known to be associated with a faster recovery by reducing pain and post-op ileus

  • Means to hasten recovery in open resection


Conventional management

Conventional Management

  • No standard protocol

  • Wide variations in

    • Use of Peri-operative Pain Control

    • Use of Tubes, Drains and Catheters

    • Timing of Feeding

    • Timing of Mobilization

  • Depends on attending anaesthetist, surgeon, physiotherapist and nursing staff


Means to hasten recovery

Means to Hasten Recovery

  • Use of Perioperative Pain Control

  • Use of Tubes, Drains and Catheters

  • Timing of Feeding

  • Timing of Mobilization


Peri operative pain control

Peri-operative Pain Control

  • Wide variation

    • Systemic opioid e.g. PCA

    • Epidural anaesthesia

      • Opioid

      • LA

      • Opioid – LA mixture

  • Best if provide best pain control, without increasing undesirable side effects or post-op ileus

Conclusion

Conclusion

Anaesthesiology Vol 83(4), Oct 1995, p757-765

  • Use of epidural analgesia with bupivacaine or bupivacaine and morphine:

    • Best balance of analgesia and side effects

    • Faster recovery of GI function

    • Shorter time to fulfill discharge criteria


Means to hasten recovery1

Means to Hasten Recovery

  • Use of Perioperative Pain Control

  • Use of Tubes, Drains and Catheters

  • Timing of Feeding

  • Timing of Mobilization


Ng tube decompression

NG Tube Decompression

  • Prophylactic nasogastric decompression after laparotomy was common

  • Underlying reasons:

    • ? Hasten return of bowel function

    • ? Reduce risk of aspiration thus pulmonary complications

    • ? Decrease patient discomfort by lessen abdominal distension

    • ? Protect anastomoses and prevent anastomotic leakage

Conclusion1

Conclusion

  • Routine NG decompression in elective colonic surgery

    • Slower return of GI function

    • No significant difference in terms of pulmonary complication / anastomotic leakage

  • Routine NG decompression is not recommended

Means to hasten recovery2

Means to Hasten Recovery

  • Use of Perioperative Anaesthesia and Analgesia

  • Use of Tubes, Drains and Catheters

  • Timing of Feeding

  • Timing of Mobilization


Anastomotic drainage

Anastomotic Drainage

  • Prophylactic anastomotic drainage was commonly used worldwide

  • Intention to:

    • Prevent accumulation of fluids in pelvic or peritoneal cavity

    • Permit early detection of anastomotic dehiscence

    • Treat or ?prevent anastomotic dehiscence

      Can it really improve the outcome?

Conclusion

  • No evidence that prophylactic anastomotic drainage in colorectal surgery can decrease mortality or other post-op complications

  • Prophylactic anastomotic drainage is not recommended

Means to hasten recovery3

Means to Hasten Recovery

  • Use of Perioperative Anaesthesia and Analgesia

  • Use of Tubes, Drains and Catheters

  • Timing of Feeding

  • Timing of Mobilization


Urinary catheterization

Urinary Catheterization

  • To prevent post-op urinary retention esp. those with epidural anaelgesia

  • Prolong catheterization increase risk of UTI

  • Optimal duration is unknown

  • Common practice: catheter was kept at least until epidural analgesia was taken off

Is urinary Drainage Necessary During Continuous Epidural Analgesia After Colonic Resection ? Linda Basse, et al

  • Patients were put on urinary drainage for 24 hours and epidural analgesia for 48 hours

  • Results

    • Urinary retention 9% (CI 2%-16%)

    • Urinary tract infection 4%

    • Voiding complaint at D30 0% (CI 0%-3.6%)

Conclusion3

Conclusion

  • Routine urinary bladder catheterization is not required despite ongoing continuous thoracic epidural analgesia

Means to hasten recovery4

Means to Hasten Recovery

  • Use of Perioperative Pain Control

  • Use of Tubes, Drains and Catheters

  • Timing of Feeding

  • Timing of Mobilization


Post op enteral feeding

Post-op Enteral Feeding

  • No consensus in the timing of feeding

  • Two schools of thoughts

    • NG catheter and fasting until passage of flatus,

    • No NG tube and allow oral intake soon after operation

ANZ J. Surg. 2004; 74: 298-301


Conclusion4

Conclusion

  • Patients undergoing elective colorectal resection can be started on oral feeding on the first post-op day

  • Early post-op oral feeding was safe without increase in post-op complications

ANZ J. Surg. 2004; 74: 298-301


Summary

Summary

  • Means to Hasten Recovery

    • Epidural analgesia provides good pain control

    • No routine use of nasogastric tube / anastomotic drainage

    • Routine urinary catheterization is not necessary despite use of epidural

    • Early enteral feeding is safe


Fast track surgery

Fast Track Surgery

  • Multimodal rehabilitation program

    • Pre-operative patient education

    • Newer anaesthetic, analgesic and surgical techniques

    • Aggressive post-operative rehabilitation

      • Early enteral nutrition

      • Early mobilization

      • Minimal use of tubes, drains and catheters

    • Aim to shorten time to recovery

Summary1

Summary

  • Revision of traditional surgical care programs,

    • Minimal use of tubes, drains, bladder catheter

    • Optimal pain relief with continuous thoracic epidural analgesic with LA and opioids,

    • Early enteral nutrition

    • Enforced mobilzation

      may enhance recovery after elective colonic resection.

  • In future, large randomized or multi-center studies, using identical protocols should be conducted


Our experience at rhtsk

Our Experience at RHTSK

  • Objective: To develop a standardized treatment protocol (clinical pathway) in managing patients who undergo elective colorectal resection

  • All patients undergoing elective colorectal resection with anastomosis during Jun 2005 to Aug 2005 (total 13 patients) were compared with those during Sept 2003 to Aug 2004 (total 37 patients)
