Is Laparoscopy useful to avoid contagion by COVID-19?
General Surgery / Nov 30th, 2021 11:23 am     A+ | a-
A team of scientists from the Division of Medication of the Universitat Jaume I and wellness professionals from the Multidisciplinary Device of Abdominopelvic Oncological Surgical Procedure (MUAPOS) together with the rest of the services that make up the surgical block of the General Teaching Hospital of Castellón, have actually executed a study (CovidLap) that has enhanced safety problems during laparoscopic interventions to prevent contamination by COVID-19 amongst both wellness workers and patient.

The research study has actually been implemented thanks to the fundraising campaign advertised by the public college of Castelló to relieve the economic as well as wellness results of the coronavirus, focused on raising sources to sustain the most prone trainees as well as a study against COVID-19. #SomUJIcontraCOVID elevated more than 73,000 euros thanks to the solidarity of 425 donations from people (45%) and 17 entities (55%) consisting of enrollers, collaborators, and businesses. The research study has likewise been sustained by the Medtronic Chair in surgical Training and also the Research of the UJI.

The pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 placed the world's health care systems to the test, raising doubts and also uncertainty regarding the precaution to be taken throughout regular medical facility tasks. Consequently, the study group from Castellón designed cross-sectional occurrence research as pilot research to offer scientific info on the safety of laparoscopic interventions throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Under regular conditions, laparoscopy is a risk-free procedure that produces a physical barrier between the cosmetic surgeon and also the individual, hence avoiding work-related exposure as well as cross-contamination. At the start of the pandemic, different global surgical cultures developed general recommendations for interventions (use personal protective tools, training of healthcare personnel, etc) and also certain referrals for laparoscopy (boosted air passage and mucosal protection and recommendation to utilize smoke filters in the cannulas of laparoscopy ports).

The research study team analyzed between April 2020 as well as Might 2021 the visibility of SARS-CoV-2 viral particles in the carbon filters put in the cannulas of the laparoscopy ports during treatments at the Health center General Universitario de Castellón. The outcomes show that people with adverse pharyngeal PCR for SARS-CoV-2 may have COVID-19 contamination in stomach body organs which, when exposed to ambient air, might increase the threat of contamination of running theaters and medical care team.

They have also verified that minimally intrusive surgery with controlled emptying of abdominal air (such as laparoscopy) is much more secure than traditional laparotomy and have demonstrated that the initial referrals of the surgical clinical societies based upon professional point of view were not completely right, albeit required, according to the research group.

The outcomes show that no patient has actually had a favorable oropharyngeal test after surgery, but the proof recommends that airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-s fragments from the smoke discharge of virus-carrying aerosols must be taken into consideration, so the team responsible for the research study suggests "taking additional safety measures in the operating room such as reducing the entrance and also the departure of forceps and also optics with stomach trocars to stay clear of pneumoperitoneum leakage; restricting the number of professionals in the operating room, always putting on FFP2 protective masks or checking for SARS-CoV-2 aerosols in the operating room".

In the opinion of the health experts, "the chance provided by the Universitat Jaume I and the trust revealed by all individuals and also entities that have actually backed the effort, offering their support to a translational medicine project, created in the health center setting as well as developed in the college laboratory, has actually enabled us to enhance the safety of individuals as well as professionals in the surgical atmosphere of hospitals". The results have actually been so pertinent that the different scientific societies have currently issued a wellness alert informing concerning this work.
