Preoperative risk assessment is valuable only if subsequent targeted optimization of patient care is allowed. Early assessment of high-risk surgical patients is essential to facilitate appropriate optimization. Preoperative assessment and optimization should not be exclusively focused on patients’ comorbidities, but also include nutritional assessment, functional capacity, and promote healthy life style habits that affect surgical outcomes (eg, smoking cessation); it requires a multidisciplinary approach. © 2018 Elsevier Inc.

Abstract

Preoperative risk assessment is valuable only if subsequent targeted optimization of patient care is allowed. Early assessment of high-risk surgical patients is essential to facilitate appropriate optimization. Preoperative assessment and optimization should not be exclusively focused on patients’ comorbidities, but also include nutritional assessment, functional capacity, and promote healthy life style habits that affect surgical outcomes (eg, smoking cessation); it requires a multidisciplinary approach. © 2018 Elsevier Inc.
