Abstract

Preoperative status of the patient is the major determinant of the success of fast track recovery. Anaesthetic and surgical techniques may be designed to facilitate early extubation in selected patients. The avoidance of postoperative complications will contribute to smooth recovery with a decreased length of stay in the hospital, and reduced total costs.
