Summary

Numerous studies have demonstrated that many of the patients that are admitted for surgery show signs of malnutrition. In the present work the authors studied retrospectively the nutritional valuation of 116 patients. The results show that only in 29.3% of the patients could anthropometric parameters be determined, in 19% of them biochemical parameters and in 25 % of the patients could immunological parameters of nutritional interest be determined. It is necessary to emphasise that, as other authors also indicate, that a nutritional assessment still does not constitute a customary procedure in clinical practice.
