Abstract

• The Ad Hoc Committee on Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome and Hepatitis of The Surgical Infection Society has outlined its policy regarding three deadly blood-borne viral infections. The risk of transmission of these microbes, the role of preoperative testing, the problem of the human immunodeficiency virus-infected surgeon, and conduct in the operating room are discussed.
