Title:
Response to 'Preoperative geriatric assessment and tailored interventions in frail older patients with colorectal cancer: a randomized controlled trial'.

Lawday, Samuel; Ricciardi, Edoardo; Bethune, Rob; Dermott, Frank
Abstract:
We read with interest the article "Preoperative geriatric assessment and tailored interventions in frail older patients with colorectal cancer: a randomized controlled trial" by Ommundsen et al. There is a clear appetite in the surgical community to improve outcomes following colorectal surgery particularly by pre-operative optimisation, for example all the supportive exercise programmes for accelerating recovery after major abdominal cancer surgery. We would hypothesise, like the authors, that intervention by geriatricians might improve outcomes. Unfortunately, this study has not been able to demonstrate this.
