Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) is a multicentric program that includes the fields of nursing and anesthesia, nutrition and fluid management, and minimally invasive surgery. ERAS protocols focus on reducing the postoperative complications and stress response, optimizing the postoperative recovery. They have been implemented in many surgical fields, such as cardiac, gastric, and urologic, as they were shown to be effective in reducing morbidity and the overall health costs and in improving patient satisfaction. The aim of this minireview was to investigate the impact of ERAS programs on patients' postoperative outcome after hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery.
