Abstract

Intestinal preparation is not routinely performed at our centre. Preoperative parenteral nutrition is only administered to debilitated patients. Antithrombotic prophylaxis with low-molecular-weight heparin (reviparin sodium, one ampoule, subcutaneously in the evening) and graduated compression stockings are the norm.
