There is paucity of data on Enhanced Recovery After Bariatric Surgery ERABS protocols. This feasibility study reports outcomes of this protocol utilized within a tertiary-referral bariatric centre. Data on consecutive primary procedures laparoscopic gastric bypasses, sleeve gastrectomies and gastric bands performed over 9 months within an ERABS protocol were prospectively recorded. Interventions utilized included shortened preoperative fasts, intra-operative humidification, early mobilization and feeding, avoidance of fluid overload, incentive spirometry, use of prokinetics and laxatives. Data collected included demographics, co-morbidities, morbidity, mortality, length of stay LOS and re-admissions. A total of 226 procedures age mean ± SD, 45 ± 11 years, median interquartile range BMI 44.9 41.0–49.0 kg-m were undertaken: 150 66 % bypasses, 47 21 % sleeves and 29 13 % bands. Hypertension, diabetes mellitus, sleep apnea and limited mobility were present in 40 %, 34 %, 24 % and 9 % of patients, respectively. No anastomotic or staple line leaks-bleeds were encountered. Ten 4.4 % patients developed postoperative morbidity mainly respiratory complications. One death occurred from massive pulmonary embolus in a high-risk patient despite insertion of preoperative-IVC filter. Respective mean ± SD LOS for bypasses, sleeves and bands were 1.88 ± 1.12, 2.30 ± 1.69 and 0.69 ± 0.81 days. Successful discharge on the first postoperative day was achieved in 37 % and 28 % of bypasses and sleeves, respectively. Day-case gastric bands were performed in 48 %. Thirty-day hospital re-admission occurred in six 2.7 % patients. Applying an ERABS protocol was feasible, safe, associated with low morbidity, acceptable LOS and low 30-day re-admission rates. The presence of multiple medical co-morbidities should not preclude use of an ERABS protocol within bariatric patients.
