Abstract

This paper aims to describe our experience in an interventional radiology unit in a hospital in Spain that was severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. To this end, we did a prospective observational study of 20 consecutive patients with COVID-19 who underwent 21 interventional radiology procedures between March 13, 2020 and May 11, 2020. We describe the measures taken to reorganize the work and protective measures, as well as the repercussions of the situation on our unit’s overall activity and activity in different phases. The COVID-19 pandemic has represented a challenge in our daily work, but learning from our own experience and the recommendations of the Spanish radiological societies (SERVEI and SERAM) has enabled us to adapt successfully. Our activity dropped only 22% compared to the same period in 2019.

Resumen

El objetivo del presente trabajo es mostrar la experiencia en una unidad de radiología intervencionista de un hospital de nuestro país muy afectado por la pandemia Covid-19. Para ello se ha realizado un estudio observacional prospectivo de una serie de casos consecutivos (n = 20) de pacientes Covid-19, sometidos a 21 procedimientos intervencionistas, durante el periodo de 2 meses de estudio (13 marzo -11 mayo de 2020). Se exponen las medidas de re-organización del trabajo, medidas de protección; así como la repercusión de la situación en la actividad de la unidad total y por fases. La pandemia Covid-19 ha supuesto un reto para el trabajo diario en nuestra unidad, pero siguiendo nuestra propia experiencia y las recomendaciones de SERVEI y SERAM, nos hemos adaptado a la situación de forma exitosa. Se ha observado una disminución de la actividad de tan sólo un 22% sobre el mismo periodo del año 2019.
