Schwegler et al. Nutritional risk is a clinical predictor of postoperative mortality and morbidity in surgery for colorectal cancer. Br J Surg 2010;97:92-7.
Based on the NRS-2002, there was a significant difference in postoperative complication rate between patients at nutritional risk and those not at risk (62 versus 39.8 per cent; P = 0.004) but not if Reilly's NRS was used (58 versus 44.1 per cent; P = 0.086).
Nutritional risk was identified as an independent predictor of postoperative complications (odds ratio 2.79; P = 0.002).

Raslan et al. Comparison of nutritional risk screening tools for predicting clinical outcomes in hospitalized patients. Nutrition 2010;26:721-6.
Performance in predicting complications, very long length of hospital stay (LOS), and death was analyzed using receiver operating characteristic curves.
NRS 2002 (complications: 0.6531; very long LOS: 0.6508; death: 0.7948) and MNA-SF (complications: 0.6495; very long LOS: 0.6197; death: 0.7583) had largest areas under the ROC curve compared to MUST (complications: 0.6036; very long LOS: 0.6109; death: 0.6363).
For elderly patients, NRS 2002 was not significantly different than MNA-SF (P>0.05) for predicting outcomes.

Ozkalkanli et al. Comparison of tools for nutrition assessment and screening for predicting the development of complications in orthopedic surgery. Nutr Clin Pract 2009;24:274-80.
In patients undergoing orthopedic surgery, NRS 2002 predicted development of complications better than the SGA.

Kyle et al. Comparison of tools for nutritional assessment and screening at hospital admission: a population study. Clin Nutr 2006;25:409-17.
As compared to SGA, the sensitivity was 62%, 61% and 43% and specificity was 93%, 76% and 89% with the NRS-2002, MUST and NRI, respectively.
NRS-2002 had higher positive (85%) and negative predictive values (79%) than the MUST (65% and 76%) or NRI (76% and 66%, respectively).
