What is already known:
Nutrition is an essential part of a successful ERAS pathway. For oesophageal cancer patients malnutrition is especially common, so this is an even more important aspect for these patients.

What this paper adds:
This review explores the current literature on nutrition in the pre-, peri- and post-operative phases of the management of oesophageal cancer as part of an ERAS pathway.
