Proposed Resumption of Surgery Algorithm Following the Corona Virus SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic

The novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic has crippled vascular surgery practices around the world with almost four million cases and over 260,000 deaths as of May 6, 20201. In order to preserve hospital resources including personal protective equipment and ventilators as well as to “flatten the curve” of exposure of patients and healthcare providers to COVID-19, most centers have imposed limitations on elective/scheduled surgical practices2. For vascular surgeons, this may include limiting procedures such as peripheral arterial disease with claudication, asymptomatic carot id artery disease, small aortic aneurysm, superficial venous disease, and most dialysis access.
