Capçalera CovidSurg

Publication of the new results from an international study on surgery and COVID-19 involving GOES

The specialist journal Colorectal Disease has recently published new results from the international multicentre study on surgery and COVID-19 called CovidSurg, in which one of the participants is Dr Pablo Collera, member of the Gastrointestinal Oncology, Endoscopy and Surgery research group (GOES) and head of the General Surgery service at Althaia. The article is entitled The impact of surgical delay on resectability of colorectal cancer: An international prospective cohort study.

The study, which included 5,453 patients from 304 hospitals in 47 countries, has shown that the surgical delay in colon cancer caused by the pandemic has not negatively affected the procedure or the patients’ survival rate.

GOES’s collaboration with CovidSurg has generated a significant scientific output. CovidSurg comprises centres from more than 120 countries and aims to evaluate the impact of COVID on the efficacy and safety of surgical procedures. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, Dr Collera and other researchers from the General Surgery and Digestive System and Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology departments of the Fundació Althaia have contributed to 15 articles, the vast majority published in first quartile journals (including The LancetThe Lancet Oncology and Journal of Clinical Oncology, with impact factors over 40), with a cumulative impact factor of 231,011 and more than 1,000 cumulative citations.
