The Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols are a set of multidisciplinary interventions that have resulted in decreased complications, length of stay, and opioid consumption on various surgical fields. ERAS is relatively new to microsurgical breast reconstruction and has been continually improving. Extremes of fluid administration have been found to have detrimental effects and increased complication rates on microsurgical breast reconstruction outcomes. Ricardo Garza @Richit0 and his co-authors from UT Southwestern evaluated the impact of the ERAS protocol on perioperative fluid management and its associations with surgical outcomes. They found that patients managed through an ERAS protocol received less IV crystalloids in the perioperative period and had a greater urine output. These patients also exhibited lower flap and donor site complication rates.
