Özet

Objective: Currently most nutritional assessment techniques are based on their ability to predict clinical outcomes. However, the validity of any of these techniques to truly measure "nutritional risk" has not been proved. We have therefore prospectively assessed the prognostic value of two nutritional assessment techniques and nonnutritional factors in determining outcome after major abdominal surgery.
