Ugeskr Læger 2018;180:V06180445
The prognosis for patients with colorectal cancer has improved markedly in recent years due to standardisation of surgical procedures and incorporation of a multidisciplinary approach in treatment planning. Despite clinical advances, systemic disease recurrence following intended curative surgery remains the most prominent clinical challenge. Identification of patients with elevated perioperative risk of complications provides the opportunity for individualised, multimodal treatment strategies aimed at enhanced patient recovery and improved long-term patient outcomes.
