Hepatopancreaticobiliary injuries during the COVID-19 pandemic

Murat Derebey, Mahmut Arif Yuksek

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results of conservatively or surgically treated patients with hepatopancreaticobiliary (HPB) injuries during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The medical records of 360 patients who were asked for consultation from the emergency department between March 11, 2020 and March 31, 2021 and evaluated by a single surgeon during this period were retrospectively reviewed. Twenty-three patients with HPB injuries were included in the study. Blunt abdominal trauma (47.8%) was the most common etiology of HPB injuries and the most frequently affected organ was the liver (69.6%). Eleven (47.8%) of the patients with HPB injuries were operated and 12 (52.2%) were followed conservatively. The hemoglobin value was significantly lower in the operated group (p<0.05). The World Society of Emergency Surgery (WSES) stage IV liver trauma was higher in the operated group. All of the ERCP-related perforations were Stapfer Type 4 and only one patient required surgery. Only 1 (4.3%) patients was COVID-19 positive at the time of first admission. No patients contracted COVID-19 during the hospitalization. Morbidity rate was 26.1% and mortality rate was 8.7% after HPB injury. Further studies are needed to reveal the relationship between HPB surgery and COVID-19 pandemic. We would like to emphasize that compliance with isolation conditions and vaccination are very important for both patients and us healthcare professionals.

Key words: COVID-19 pandemic, hepatopancreaticobiliary injury, emergency surgery

Clinical features and outcomes of gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with COVID-19

Suleyman Koc, Oktay Bulur.

   

Abstract
COVID-19 infected patients clinically can be asymptomatic or symptomatic. Clinical course in symptomatic patients may be present with mild, moderate, or severe symptoms. The coronavirus can affect multi-organ systems. The respiratory system is the most frequent target for the virus. Besides, gastrointestinal involvement may occur in occasional patients. We aimed to determine the clinical features and outcomes of gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with COVID-19. We retrospectively investigated 188 COVID-19 patients—patients clinical and demographic information obtained from the hospital database. Patients were categorized according to the clinical management guide released by the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Health. The mean age of the patients was 55.95 years (±17.62). 118 (62.8%) of the patients were men, and 70 (37.2%) of women. 118 (62.8%) patients were symptomatic, and 70 (37.2%) patients were asymptomatic. Among symptomatic patients, 56(47.4%) patients have isolated non-gastrointestinal symptoms, 52 (44.06%) patients have both (non-gastrointestinal, and gastrointestinal) symptoms, and 10 (8.4%) patients have isolated gastrointestinal symptoms. The distribution of the symptoms in 118 symptomatic patients was: 61 (32.5 %) patients have a fever, 84 (44.7 %) patients have a cough, 72 (38.3%) patients have dyspnea. The spectrum of gastrointestinal symptoms was as follows: 11 (5.9%) patients have diarrhea, 18 (9.6% ) patients have abdominal pain, 24 (12.8%) patients have nausea, 14 (7.5%) patients have vomiting, 38 (18.7%) patients have anorexia, 2 (2.1%) patients have constipation. However, COVID-19 infection present commonly with respiratory and musculoskeletal symptoms; it is important to be aware of the varied clinical presentations in COVID-19, including isolated gastrointestinal symptoms. This will allow increasing the timely detectability of infected patients and more effective contact control measures.

Key words: COVID-19 pandemic, COVID-19 infection, gastrointestinal symptoms
