Özet

Objective: Although anti-HCV testing in patients' sera before surgery is still controversial in terms of cost and patient rights, nowadays it is requested in most of surgical departments. The aim of this study was to determine whether the test results of the patients were shared with the patient by the physician, whether the patients were informed about the presence of the disease before surgery, and to which extent they were regularly followed by a physician.
