Exercise training is effective as 'prehabilitation' before surgery in an elderly population
Date:11/14/2013

Arnhem, The Netherlands Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) assessment and exercise training in an elderly population is safe and well tolerated, according to the results of a new feasibility study, conducted in the UK.

CPET is a non-invasive measurement of the cardiovascular and respiratory system during exercise to assess exercise capacity and cardiopulmonary fitness. According to the researchers, the role of exercise training or 'prehabilitation' for optimising preoperative physiological function to counter catabolic effects of surgery has received little attention in cancer patients. This is especially important for bladder cancer patients, where radical cystectomy (RC), the mainstay of treatment for muscle invasive bladder cancer, is associated with significant morbidity.

"Promising evidence from systematic reviews suggests that exercise training can improve cardiopulmonary fitness in the short time available for surgery and reduce risk of postoperative complications, " the authors emphasized in the abstract published for the European Multidisciplinary Meeting for Urological Cancers, taking place in Marceille, France, on 15-17 November 2013.

"Although it has been established that preoperative fitness using CPET is a good indicator for postoperative recovery, there is very little evidence to indicate whether fitness can be improved in a short time period prior to surgery in an elderly population," commented the lead author of the study Dr. Srijit Banerjee of Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital's Department of Urology in Norwich, UK.

The authors conducted a randomised controlled feasibility study to examine whether a short preoperative course of supervised exercise sessions is tolerated and whether it can lead to an improvement in cardiopulmonary fitness.

30 patients undergoing radical cystectomy were randomised to either control or intervention arm after initial CPET assessment. Patients in the interven
