Elective procedures post COVID-19.

Joint college guidance on delays to elective surgery post recovery from SARS- COV 2 infection.

ANZCA has joined four other medical colleges (RACS, RANZCOG, RANZCO and RACDS) to agree on guidance for elective procedures post COVID-19.

Available evidence suggests patients who had SARS-CoV-2 infection diagnosed within 7 days before or up to 30 days after surgery are at significant risk of post-operative complications including increased morbidity and mortality.
