Abstract
There is no data on patients with severe obesity who developed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) after bariatric surgery.
Four gastric bypass operations, performed in a 2-week period between Feb 24 and March 4, 2020, in Tehran, Iran, were
complicated with COVID-19. The mean age and body mass index were 46 ± 12 years and 49 ± 3 kg/m2. Patients developed
their symptoms (fever, cough, dyspnea, and fatigue) 1, 2, 4, and 14 days after surgery. One patient had unnoticed anosmia 2 days
before surgery. Three patients were readmitted in hospital. All 4 patients were treated with hydroxychloroquine. In two patients
who required admission in intensive care unit, other off-label therapies including antiretroviral and immunosuppressive agents
were also administered. All patients survived. In conclusion, COVID-19 can complicate the postoperative course of patients after
bariatric surgery. Correct diagnosis and management in the postoperative setting would be challenging. Timing of infection after
surgery in our series would raise the possibility of hospital transmission of COVID-19: fromasymptomatic patients at the time of
bariatric surgery to the healthcare workers versus acquiring the COVID-19 infection by non-infected patients in the perioperative
period.
