About This Topic

Undergoing surgical procedures or suffering an acute traumatic injury are experiences that are common and likely for any one individual to face during his or her lifetime. As surgical and traumatic injury patients drive a significant portion of health care activity, understanding the means by which to provide for optimal acute healing in this setting is important. Nutritional factors are critical to successful outcomes for acute traumatic and surgical wounds, yet much is unknown as to how surgeons and trauma practitioners can harness the power of nutrition to maximize healing. Similarly, clinical practice varies tremendously in this setting, and protocols for the role of vitamins, minerals, and other nutritional supplements are often not utilized or not evidenced based. This special issue of Recent Progress in Nutrition will explore the role of vitamins, minerals, nutritional supplements, and other nutritional care after acute surgical or traumatic injury and supply evidence for clinical practice guidelines.
