Cardiac Surgery during the COVID-19 Pandemic


Adrian Lobontiu*

There is a dearth of information regarding surgical services and patient outcomes during a pandemic because the major focus is kept on the pandemic itself and critical care. The majority of the small studies focusing on the outcomes of Covid-19 positive patients after various surgical procedures, such as thoracic and orthopaedic surgery, make up the currently available Covid-19 evidence. According to these preliminary investigations, surgery increases the chance of death in people who have Covid-19 and the disease's progression in those who are only incubating it. More recently, the COVIDSurg partnership has reported on 1128 surgical patients with a Covid-19 diagnosis (pre- or post-surgery) across 235 hospitals in 24 countries with a variety of therapeutic indications.
