BRAHIN, Federico Antonio; RESINA, Eduardo Javier  y  TOLL, Enrique. Mayor outpatient surgery. Opportunity against the pandemic. Cir. parag. [online]. 2020, vol.44, n.3, pp.6-13. ISSN 2307-0420.

The global crisis unleashed by the coronavirus pandemic redefined the modality of health care and thus also in surgery. Major Ambulatory Surgery (MAS) was developed as a working modality that was efficient for the health system but was unable to put itself in the conversation. At this moment, it seems to be the ideal model to avoid Covid-19 infections and, given this opportunity, to definitively promote their development. The General Surgery Service of Nicolás Avellaneda Hospital in Tucumán presents an integrated MAS unit with extensive experience, which served as a support to respond to the need to resolve surgical waiting lists, prevent simple pathologies from progressing to complicated ones, work with low costs and minimize the risk of contagion during the pandemic period in our province. We present the steps and precautions taken to redesign and adapt to the daily way of working.

Palabras clave : COVID-19; coronavirus; pandemics; general surgery; mayor ambulatory surgery.
