Surgery is indicated to cure or palliate numerous physical ailments, and millions of operations are performed each year worldwide. While the risk of complication overall is low because of the presence of trained and skilled surgeons and the adaption of good surgical techniques, complications can still occur even with the most experienced of surgeons or in the simplest of cases. Surgery can be complicated by adverse effects that can affect daily living by impairing the quality of life, increase the cost of health systems by longer hospitalization times and even increase mortality and decrease life expectancy. Complications can be more or less severe; can resolve spontaneously or require medical, interventional or surgical treatment; and can be specific to the operation performed or general; but all are significant for the patient and are usually the most difficult part of the patient’s management. Prompt and early diagnosis of the complications and adequate and proper treatment are the cornerstones in the successful management of complications. This Special Issue of the Journal of Clinical Medicine will focus on Prevention, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Strategies for Abdominal Surgery Complications.
