UKNFR May 2020

Latest UKNFR Report - from Anita Hazari

The impact of Covid19

As expected with Covid19, the numbers have fallen significantly, as breast reconstruction was halted in March. The flaps currently being performed are for H&N oncology reconstruction (priority 2) and Lower/ upper limb trauma (priority 1).

Covid related data entries have also been added into UKNFR in the last few days, so we will get data regarding swab positivity prior to surgery, at discharge and development of Covid19 in the postopertaive period. This should help us to monitor if peri-operative outcomes are more adversely affected in the Covid negative and positive groups.
