Author commentary on Marta Rodríguez-Carrasco et al.


Marta Rodríguez-Carrasco et al. COVID-19 and endoscopic management of superficial gastrointestinal neoplastic lesions: a multinational cross-sectional survey.

In this survey, completed by 11 centers across four continents, with details on therapeutic endoscopy postponements during the early COVID-19 lockdown period, it was found that 55 % of the scheduled procedures were deferred; however, based on clinical judgment, the delay was not expected to worsen patient prognosis.
