Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Abdominal surgery is a wide field that is currently facing multiple challenges due to the emergence of new technologies, such as robotics and artificial intelligence, that promise to change the current practice. On the other hands, the need for standardization requires a systematic approach in selecting the best evidence in the literature to inform the current scenario.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic created the backlog in elective surgery, and the implementation of telemedicine and remote consultations represents further challenges for health systems worldwide.

Therefore, researchers in the field of abdominal surgery (general surgery, no other surgical specialties) interested in analyzing the impacts and consequences of new technologies and the evidence of well-established techniques in the field of abdominal surgery through systematic reviews, meta-analyses and well-designed observational studies are encouraged to submit an original article to this Special Issue.
