Four weeks of preoperative alcohol intervention significantly improves organ functions before surgery, and reduces complications after colorectal surgery. Preoperative prevention programs are cost-effective. In conclusion, according to present evidence the smoking and drinking patient should be identified, informed, and offered... (More)
