Dear colleague,

Dear expert in oesophageal surgery and member of the ESDE,

With this email we invite you to participate in the PONOS survey, a survey probing practices on PeriOperative Nutrition after OeSophagectomy.

Postoperative feeding after esophagectomy is known to exist in a wide variety across centers, based on a wide variety of local experience and standing orders. Through this survey we want to create a snapshot of how perioperative nutrition preceding or following oesophagectomy is established accross the globe, and what the reasons are for prefering one method over another.

Completion of this survey takes about 10 to 15 minutes. The survey can be accessed through any webbrowser on a computer, a tablet or on your smartphone.

Please follow this link to start the survey:

We thank you in advance for your willingness to share your expertise and your participation in this project.
