Background: Bariatric surgery is a surgical procedure for patients with extreme obesity. Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) is a method that provides special peri- and post-operation care. Here, we aimed to compare the effects of ERAS and standard recovery cares. Materials and Methods: This is a randomized clinical trial that was performed in 2020-2021 in Isfahan on 108 candidates for mini gastric bypass. Patients were then randomly divided into two equal groups receiving ERAS and standard recovery protocols. Patients were examined and visited after one month regarding the average number of hospitalization days, the average days required to return to normal activity or work, occurrence of pulmonary thromboemboli (PTE) and the rate of readmission. Results: Patients that received ERAS had significantly lower frequencies of nausea and vomiting (P = 0.032). Patients that received ERAS had significantly lower hospitalization duration (P < 0.001) compared to controls. No other significant differences were observed between two groups regarding surgery complication, re-admission rate and occurrence of PTE (P > 0.99 for all). Conclusion: Patients that received ERAS protocol after gastric bypass had significantly lower hospitalization duration and lower incidence of nausea and vomiting. They also had similar post-operative outcomes compared to the standard protocol.
