[Surgical management of cancer patients within the COVID-19 pandemic].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

A systematic review of the world literature data on surgical management and preoperative screening of cancer patients within the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as prevention of SARS-CoV-2 transmission and resumption of elective surgery.

MATERIAL AND METHODS

Literature data searching included Pubmed, MedLine, Scopus, Web of Science, and RSCI databases. We enrolled literature data published for the period from March 2020 to June 2020.

RESULTS

Retrospective and prospective clinical trials have been analyzed. The review ensures up-to-date data on surgical management of cancer patients under the pandemic, recommendations for resuming the elective surgery, preoperative screening and prevention of COVID-19.

CONCLUSION

To date, the COVID-19 pandemic is still not resolved, and infection continues spreading around the world. Thus, there is an urgent need for more thorough research of the strategies for mitigating the effects of pandemic. To date, the recommendations for optimal surgical management of cancer patients within the pandemic are still actively developed considering the benefits of treatment and risks of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Resumption of elective surgery should be progressive and cautious, especially in pandemic areas. For safety reasons, all patients eligible for surgical treatment should be carefully selected according to stratification of risk factors. Thorough preoperative screening, monitoring of symptoms of infection, and use of appropriate adapted personal protective equipment are extremely important.
