Abstract

The COVID-19 outbreak has profoundly changed both the management and scheduling of surgical patients, necessitating a reduction in the number of elective cases and reserving priority for high-risk classes, such as oncological and emergency surgery. Notwithstanding the introduction of new protocols, much about the disease still remains unknown and surgical approaches, including minimally invasive surgery, are being examined for potential biohazard risks. The purpose of this article is to provide some clarification and to offer some recommendations to minimize the risk of diffusion of the virus during abdominal surgery
