Background & Objective: At the beginning of the pandemic COVID-19, most health facilities suspended non-emergency surgeries to ensure emergency care capacity. Due to the need for surgery, and insufficient information about the complications of surgery in these patients, the present study aimed to investigate the outcome of surgeries in patients with COVID-19 in Motahari Hospital in Urmia.
Materials & Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on 112 patients diagnosed with COVID-19 who underwent surgery. A Checklist including the following data was extracted from the patients' medical records, symptoms, laboratory tests, and any complications related to surgery up to one month after separate surgery.
Results: A total of 6.3% of patients had limited complications due to the incision site after the surgery. The results did not show a significant relationship between age, type of anesthesia, and the type of operation with complications. However, the highest percentage of complications was seen in less than 40 years and emergency surgeries. It was found that patients with a history of diabetes had the highest rate of complications (57.1%), although there was no significant relationship between the underlying disease and complications (P = 0.40). In our study, none of the patients experienced complications such as vascular thrombosis or embolism, respiratory failure, and heart failure, or the need for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Overall, 17.9% of patients needed ICU admission (mean 2.16 ± 1.50 days), indicating a higher ICU hospitalization demand. Also, in terms of in-ward hospitalization, patients with complications had a longer hospital stay than uncomplicated patients (7.85 ± 3.36 days) vs. (5.13 ± 1.66), which was not statistically significant (P = 0.88).
Conclusion: The results show that surgery is not directly associated with an increased risk of mortality and complications in patients with COVID-19. On the other hand, Underlying diseases, age, and the urgency of surgery are associated with a higher risk for complications than COVID-19.
