Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) programs have recently been developed in order to reduce morbidity, improve recovery, and shorten hospital stays of surgical patients. Since the 1990s, ERAS programs have been successfully applied in many centres, especially in northern Europe and America, to perioperative management for colorectal surgery, vascular surgery, thoracic surgery, and then also to urological and gynaecologic surgery. Purpose of this paper is to evaluate and discuss the very recent introduction of ERAS programs also in head and neck surgery. Embase and Pubmed database searches were performed for relevant published studies. There are still no reports concerning the results of the application of ERAS protocols in the head and neck field. ERAS programs, however, could offer also to head and neck surgery patients an advantage in terms of fastening recovery, reducing hospital stay, and favouring early return to daily activities after hospital discharge. Therefore, the investigation of specific ERAS protocol in head and neck surgery patients should be encouraged.
