This document is the fourth in a series of Tobacco Knowledge Summaries. This document was prepared with the objective to summarize the association between tobacco use and postsurgical complications, as well as describe the effectiveness of interventions to reduce presurgical tobacco use and tobacco-related complications. This is also intended as an advocacy tool to widely include health care professionals in the fight for tobacco control and prevention of tobacco-related adverse health effects. This knowledge summary was prepared by the World Health Organization in collaboration with the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) and the University of Newcastle Australia.
