EVAN-G score in patients undergoing minimally invasive gynecology oncologic surgery in an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program

Abstract : Introduction: Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) has been proven to decrease the length of hospital stay without increasing re-admission rates or complications. There are limited data on the satisfaction of patients undergoing minimally invasive surgery for gynecologic malignancy within ERAS programs. The aim of this study was to evaluate patient satisfaction after minimally invasive surgery for gynecologic malignancy within the ERAS program using the 'Evaluation du Vécu de l'Anésthésie Génerale (EVAN-G)' questionnaire. Methods: This observational retrospective study was conducted at the Paoli-Calmettes Institute between June 2016 and December 2018. All the included patients underwent minimally invasive surgery for a gynecologic malignancy. EVAN-G, a validated questionnaire, was used to measure peri-operative patient satisfaction. This questionnaire consists of 26 items assessing six elements: attention, privacy, information, pain, discomfort, and waiting time. Each element is assessed via a 5-step numerical scale and then transformed to a 0-100 scale according to the degree of satisfaction. The EVAN-G questionnaire was given to patients before surgery and collected during the post-operative consultation (2-3 weeks after surgery). Results: A total of 175 patients underwent minimally invasive surgery for gynecologic malignancy within the ERAS program. Of these, 92 patients were included in the study and 83 patients were excluded. The overall patient compliance rate with our ERAS program was 90%. The analysis of the EVAN-G score of all participants showed an overall high level of satisfaction with a mean score of 81.9 (range 41.6-100). Patients with peri-operative complications or having prolonged hospitalization also showed high levels of satisfaction with a mean score of 80.5 (41.6-100) and 83.2(55-100), respectively. Conclusion: In this study we showed a high patient satisfaction with the ERAS program. When comparing length of stay and complications, neither extended length of stay nor development of complications after minimally invasive surgery impacted patient satisfaction.
