Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Journal of Clinical Medicine “Vascular Surgery: Technology Innovation and Patients Management” will present the reader with new diagnostic and therapeutic achievements in vascular pathologies.

Over recent decades, vascular surgery has undergone a substantial number of changes from traditional surgery to the endovascular revolution. Endovascular device modifications in materials and structure have led to massive improvements in the treatment of vascular pathologies. The effort in developing new surgical and endovascular devices has led to changes in many different fields.

New approaches in carotid artery stenting (CAS) such as dual-layered stents or new embolic prevention systems could define a paradigm change in the management of such disease.

The development of aortic endografts for endovascular procedures is focusing on the conformability, inner branches, off-the-shelf solutions and lower profile endoskeleton, emerging as a potential breakthrough in endovascular abdominal, thoracic and thoraco-abdominal repair (EVAR, TEVAR, F/B-EVAR), even in complex anatomies.

Remarkable advancements have been made in the endovascular treatment of peripheral artery disease (PAD) and chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI), where “vessel preparation” with new atherectomy devices, intravascular lithotripsy (IVL) and new antirestenotic therapy is becoming increasingly popular.

Moreover, recent advancements in radiation protection and new types of imaging or different medical approaches are improving our standards of care, without forgetting how open techniques still represent the most suitable solutions in some cases.

In this context of technological evolutions and rapid changes, new studies are mandatory to assess whether these innovations could lead to major improvements in the current state of the art.

We encourage the authors to submit original research articles, reviews, communications or technical notes. Works that could represent a key change in vascular pathology diagnosis and treatment will receive our highest priority.

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.
