Authors' objectives:

This aim of this report was to assess whether there is a clinical scale or scoring tool to predict prior to colorectal surgery the risk of morbidity after surgery, not related to the outcome of the cancer but to comorbidity.

Authors' recommendations: No English language studies were identified which describe the preoperative use of a validated scoring system in colorectal surgery to determine a patient's risk of morbidity and mortality not associated with the disease.
