Description

This study is a description of factors associated with patients and healthcare workers risk to develop COVID-19 during digestive endoscopy in a high-incidence area. Data reported that COVID-19 development after gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy was uncommon both for patients and healthcare workers, probably mainly due to environmental factors. Only e combined EUS + ERCP resulted independent risk factors for probable or confirmed COVID-19 development after logistic regression analysis. Whether combined EUS + ERCP convey an increased risk deserves further investigation. doi: 10.1016/j.gie.2020.07.019
