    Background: COVID 19 has changed the practice of surgery vividly all over the world. Pediatric surgery is not an exception. Prioritization protocols allowing us to provide emergency MESHD surgical care to the children TRANS in need while controlling the pandemic spread. The aim of this study is to share our experiences with the outcome of children TRANS with COVID 19 who had a co existing surgical emergency MESHD. Methods: This is a retrospective observational study. We reviewed the epidemiological, clinical, and laboratory data of all patients admitted in our surgery department through the emergency MESHD department and later diagnosed to have COVID 19 by RT PCR. The study duration was 3 months (April 2020 to June 2020). A nasopharyngeal swab was taken from all patients irrespective of symptoms to detect SARS CoV 2 by RT PCR with the purpose of detecting asymptomatic TRANS patients and patients with atypical symptoms. Emergency MESHD surgical services were provided immediately without delay and patients with positive test results were isolated according to the hospital protocol. We divided the test positive patients into 4 age groups TRANS for the convenience of data analysis. Data were retrieved from hospital records and analyzed using SPSS (version 25) software. Ethical permission was taken from the hospital ethical review board. Results: Total patients were 32. Seven (21.9%) of them were neonates. Twenty four (75%) patients were male TRANS. The predominant diagnosis was acute abdomen MESHD followed by infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis MESHD pyloric stenosis HP (IHPS), myelomeningocele HP, and intussusception MESHD intussusception HP. Only two patients had mild respiratory symptoms (dry cough MESHD cough HP). Fever MESHD Fever HP was present in 13 (40.6%) patients. Fourteen (43.8%) patients required surgical treatment. The mean duration of hospital stay was 5.5 days. One neonate with ARM died in the postoperative ward due to cardiac arrest HP. No patient had hypoxemia HP or organ failure. Seven health care workers (5.51%) including doctors & nurses got infected with SARS Co V2 during this period. Conclusion: Our study has revealed a milder course of COVID 19 in children TRANS with minimal infectivity even when present in association with emergency MESHD surgical conditions. This might encourage a gradual restart to mitigate the impact of COVID 19 on children TRANS surgery. Keywords: COVID 19, COVID 19 in children TRANS, Children TRANS Surgery, Surgical emergency MESHD, Surgery in COVID 19 positive patients.

    Background: Since the outbreak of COVID-19, no official guidelines for urgent surgical management of patients with the COVID-19 concern have been recommended. The current study provides our experience about the management for the patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 who required urgent surgical intervention.Methods: From February 5, 2019, to May 26, 2020, there were 5 cases of patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection MESHD managed with urgent surgical intervention in two hospitals in Chongqing. Results: The five cases with COVID-19 concern were admitted with different diseases MESHD, including acute intussusception MESHD intussusception HP, strangulated inguinal indirect hernia MESHD hernia HP, acute purulent appendicitis MESHD, femoral fracture MESHD and onset to delivery. Finally, four patients obtained negative results afterwards. One pregnant woman with confirmed COVID-19 infection MESHD underwent caesarean section. All medical staff involved in the patients management were well, and no in-hospital transmission TRANS occurredConclusion:Suspected COVID-19 patients must be managed as positive patients until proven or denied in order to minimize the spread and transmission TRANS of infection MESHD. The current protocol carried out in our practice might be plausible and technically feasible for hospitals when dealing with COVID-19 infection MESHD.

    Introduction The novel Coronavirus disease MESHD has had significant impact on healthcare globally. Knowledge of this virus is evolving, definitive care is not yet known, and mortality is increasing. We assessed its initial impact on paediatric surgical practice in Nigeria, creating a benchmark for recommendations and future reference. Methods Survey of 120 paediatric surgeons from 50 centres to assess socio-demographics and specific domains of impact of COVID-19 on their services and training in Nigeria. Seventy four surgeons adequately responded. Responses have been analysed. Duplicate submissions for centres were excluded by combining and averaging the responses from centres with multiple respondents. Results Forty-six (92%) centres had suspended elective surgeries. All centres continued emergency MESHD surgeries but volume reduced in March by 31%. Eleven (22%) centres reported 13 suspended elective cases presenting as emergencies MESHD in March, accounting for 3% of total emergency MESHD surgeries. Nine (18%) centres adopted new modalities for managing selected surgical conditions: non-operative reduction of intussusception MESHD intussusception HP in 1(2%), antibiotic management of uncomplicated acute appendicitis MESHD in 5(10%), more conservative management of trauma and replacement of laparoscopic appendectomy with open surgery in 3(6%) respectively. Low perception of adequacy of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) was reported in 35(70%) centres. Forty (80%) centres did not offer telemedicine for patients follow up. Twenty-nine (58%) centres had suspended academic training. Perception of safety to operate was low in 37(50%) respondents, indifferent in 24% and high in 26%. Conclusion Majority of paediatric surgical centres reported cessation of elective surgeries whilst continuing emergencies MESHD. There is however an acute decline in the volume of emergency MESHD surgeries. Adequate PPE need to be provided and preparations towards handling backlog of elective surgeries once the pandemic recedes. Further study is planned to more conclusively understand the full impact of this pandemic on children TRANS's surgery. Key words pandemic, COVID-19, children TRANS's surgery.
