Special Issue in Gastroenterology Insights: Novelties in Colorectal Surgery and Proctology
Hepatobiliary surgery (HPBs) is one of the most challenging and rapidly expanding surgical fields. In the last twenty years, liver surgery has been completely revolutionized with the introduction, discovery and launch of new ultrasound-guided parenchyma-sparing techniques, new frontiers in transplant indications and minimally invasive approaches.
Furthermore, HPBs require an even deeper relationship with all other medical branches (e.g., radiology, oncology and pathology) which constitute the multidisciplinary team, whose role is crucial in improving patient outcomes.
At the same time, technology is already changing our lives in all fields. It is both subtly and obviously omnipresent. Thanks to the improvement of technology in all fields we are changing our behaviors in the management and indications of liver surgery. Therefore, it is up to us to understand its potential in investigating the new frontiers in all fields, from diagnosis to treatment.
We should investigate these novelties with special attention concerning minimally invasive and robot-assisted liver surgery, integrated oncological therapies and the implications of artificial intelligence, which will improve our knowledge in the near future.
In light of the above, the aim of this Special Issue is to provide a series of state-of-the-art manuscripts, including both original contributions and review articles, concerning HPB surgery.
We will be grateful to all colleagues who decide to contribute to this relevant topic.
