Pancreaticobiliary diseases mainly consist of pancreatic diseases, including pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma and intraductal papillary mucinous tumors as well as biliary tract cancers such as intrahepatic and hilar cholangiocarcinoma. Although patients with advanced pancreaticobiliary diseases have a dismal prognosis, surgery remains a mainstay as a potentially curative treatment for patients with early stage pancreaticobiliary diseases. In recent decades, robotic and laparoscopic pancreaticobiliary surgery has been increasingly utilized, and several studies noted that minimally invasive surgeries for pancreaticobiliary diseases are associated with shorter hospital stays, reduced blood loss, and equivalent complication rates compared with open surgery. In addition, patients with locally advanced or distant metastatic pancreaticobiliary cancers have a chance to receive resection by a strategy of neoadjuvant therapy and conversion surgery, resulting in relatively high R0 resection rates and favorable prognosis versus unresectable diseases. As such, these surgical advances combined with perioperative chemoradiotherapy have steadily contributed to a better prognosis for patients with pancreaticobiliary diseases.
The Special Issue aims to present established, advanced, and novel insights for preventing or treating pancreaticobiliary diseases, thus improving patients’ quality of life and increasing life expectancy.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
