Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will provide an in-depth overview of our current knowledge regarding factors affecting the perioperative course of gynecologic oncology patients, who often represent a difficult group during their perioperative management. Several interventions have been proposed in recent years for the opti-mization of the variables of gynecologic oncology patients, in order to help to reduce perioperative mor-bidity rates. 
Potential topics of interest include but are not limited to enhanced recovery protocols, novel techniques concerning the surgical management of gynecologic oncology patients, novel aspects around immunonu-trition, as well as predictive factors that may help to predict the course of these women. The issue covers the management of patients with ovarian, endometrial, cervical, vulvar, and breast cancer. We seek con-tributions in the form of original research articles and reviews, in hopes that leading experts will share their knowledge on the pathophysiology of perioperative recovery and the management of these patients.
