We review various aspects of enhanced recovery after surgery for gynaecological patients, including patient education and counselling, preoperative assessment and optimisation, preoperative fasting and nutrition, bowel preparation, thromboembolism prophylaxis, perioperative analgesia, peritoneal drains and urinary catheters, postoperative nausea and vomiting, hypothermia prevention, early feeding and early mobilisation, and implementation of enhanced recovery after surgery.
