Brief Summary:
CovidSurg will capture real-world international data, to determine 30-day mortality in patients with COVID-19 infection who undergo surgery. This shared international experience will inform the management of this complex group of patients who undergo surgery throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, ultimately improving their clinical care.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
COVID-19 Coronavirus Surgery Procedure: Surgery

Detailed Description:

There is an urgent need to understand the outcomes of COVID-19 infected patients who undergo surgery. Capturing real-world data and sharing international experience will inform the management of this complex group of patients who undergo surgery throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, improving their clinical care.

The primary aim of the study is to determine 30-day mortality in patients with COVID-19 infection who undergo surgery. In doing so, this will inform future risk stratification, decision making, and patient consent.

CovidSurg is an investigator-led, non-commercial, non-interventional study is extremely low risk, or even zero risk. This study does not collect any patient identifiable information (including no dates) and data will not be analysed at hospital-level.
