Abstract  
Objective: The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is a global public health concern. Health Care Facilities in every country have to deal with a complete reorganization of labor and delivery unit, and resource management. Aim of this review is to summarize the available literature data about the impact of COVID-19 on hysteroscopic surgery. Mechanism: A search on PubMed and Medline databases was performed until March 2021. Findings in brief: Most of evidence agree on complete cancellation of elective endoscopic gynecologic surgery, and on its deferring until the pandemic has been contained. When hysteroscopy is performed, precautions should be observed to prevent COVID-19 infection. Conclusions: We summarized all best practice to perform safe and effective hysteroscopic surgery in COVID-19 times and in the slow restore of normal activities.
