dc.description.abstractObjective: To examine the effectiveness of applying the recommended enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocol compared with our usual care in women with gynecologic malignancy undergoing elective laparotomy. Methods: From June 2020 to May 2021, 93 women with gynecologic cancers (cervix, endometrium, and ovary) undergoing elective laparotomy at our institution were randomly assigned into an intervention group (ERAS protocol, 46 women) or control group (usual care, 47 women). For the intervention group, each woman was brought through the pre-specified ERAS protocol starting from preoperative counseling to postoperative management. For the control group, participants underwent routine standard care. The primary outcomes were length of hospital stay and postoperative pain. Results: The intervention group demonstrated shorter hospital stay by 20 h (47.48 h vs 67.17 h, P = 0.02) with lower postoperative pain score at postoperative day 0 (1.58 vs 4.00, P < 0.01) and day 1 (1.00 vs 2.67, P < 0.01) while having decreased opioid consumption (P < 0.01). The intervention group also had faster recovery of gastrointestinal function. Overall, good compliance to most of the ERAS pathway domains was obtained. Conclusion: The ERAS protocol demonstrates benefits on shortening hospital stay, reducing pain, and bowel function recovery without increasing complications in our population. Clinical Trial Registration: The present study was registered at (NCT04201626) on December 3, 2019. Initial participant enrollment began on June 1, 2020. Access through URL of the registration site:
