The ERAS Cardiac working group published its completed guideline on perioperative care after cardiac surgery, produced jointly with the ERAS Society, in JAMA Surg (May 2019). Portions have been presented at the American Association of Thoracic Surgery in Toronto, in May, 2019.
In addition to the guideline, an “Expert Consensus of Data Elements for Collection for Enhanced Recovery After Cardiac Surgery” has also now been published in the World Journal of Surgery.
