To explore the importance of postoperative restrictive rehydration on different patients with colorectal cancer in fast-track surgery.The clinical data of colorectal cancer patients was analyzed retrospectively from January to December 2008. The postoperative early rehabilitation was compared between a fluid restricted group (n = 90) and a traditional therapy group (n = 108).The first intake time, first aerofiexus time, first defecation time, first ambulation time and postoperative in-hospital time in fluid restriction group were shorter than those in traditional therapy group (P < 0.05). The incidence difference of the early postoperative complications had no statistical significance (P > 0.05).The differences of first ambulation time and postoperative in-hospital time in traditional therapy group with different BMI were statistically significant (P < 0.05).For diabetes, the post-operative blood-glucose level in fluid restriction group was lower than that in traditional therapy group (P = 0.043), although there was no statistical difference inpre-operative glucose. In the traditional therapy group with different rectal surgeries, the difference of the first defecation time was statistically significant (P = 0.041), so was that of the first ambulation time (P = 0.023).Restrictive fluid regimen makes a certain contribution topromoting the early postoperative rehabilitation, but can't beproved to be a decisive factor of the clinical superiority in FT.
