  • CONCLUSIONS: There is considerable variability in surgeon recommendations for activity restrictions following three general surgery procedures in children. While activity restrictions are rooted in the physiology of wound healing, there is little evidence to support the benefit of these restrictions in clinical practice. In addition, activity restriction may have unintended deleterious effects on a child's psychosocial well-being and quality of life. Further investigation should be pursued to understand the utility of activity restrictions in children and their impact on clinical outcomes and patient quality of life.
