Abstract

The current situation of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has paralyzed non-urgent and/or oncological surgery in many hospitals in our country with what it means for the health of citizens who are awaiting a surgical procedure. Outpatient Surgery can afford more than 85% of the surgical procedures that are performed in a surgical department and is presented as a feasible and safe alternative at the present time since it does not require admission and decreases clearly the risk of infection. In addition, it is the tool that should be generalized to solve the accumulation of patients on the waiting list that the pandemic is generating, so it seems appropriate that the Ambulatory Surgery section of the Spanish Association of Surgeons present a series of recommendations for the implementation of outpatient surgery in these exceptional circumstances that we have to live.

Resumen

La situación actual de la pandemia por SARS-CoV-2 tiene paralizada la cirugía no urgente y/o oncológica en muchos hospitales de nuestro país con lo que esto conlleva para la salud de los ciudadanos que están pendientes de una intervención quirúrgica. La Cirugía Mayor Ambulatoria puede abarcar en su cartera de servicios mas del 85% de los procedimientos quirúrgicos que se realizan en un servicio de cirugía y se presenta como una alternativa factible y segura en el momento actual ya que no precisa de camas de ingreso y disminuye claramente el riego de infección. Además, es la herramienta que debería de generalizarse para solucionar la acumulación de pacientes en lista de espera que la pandemia esta generando, por lo que parece oportuno que desde la sección de Cirugía Mayor Ambulatoria de la Asociación Española de Cirujanos se presenten una serie de recomendaciones para la implementación de la misma en estas circunstancias excepcionales que nos toca vivir.
