Core Tip Although albumin remains a flawed marker of nutrition, it offers clear prognostic value in predict-ing patient outcomes after colorectal surgery. Hypoalbu-minemia significantly influences the length of hospital stay, rates of surgical site infections, enterocutaneous fistula risk, and deep vein thrombosis formation. Despite the fact that hypoalbuminemia is classically defined < 3.0 g/dL, clinical judgment must account for albumin levels ≤ 3.4 g/dL as even modest hypoalbuminemia can affect outcomes. The subjective global assessmen, modified Glasgow Prognostic Score, and Colorectal preoperative Surgical Score scoring systems provide convenient and valuable prognostic information that may help in the counseling and risk adjustment of patients undergoing colorectal surgery.
