The evolution of vascular surgery from the 1970s onwards has been entirely aimed at precision surgery with a minimally invasive nature. New techniques have obviously led to new complications and therefore to new challenges. With new techniques and complications, the introduction of endovascular treatments has greatly changed how aortic, peripheral, and carotid illnesses are treated. Despite recent modest innovations, open procedures continue to be an excellent choice in some circumstances.
Future challenges will be in the endovascular revascularization of leg vessels and in neoangiogenic therapy, in the safety of carotid surgery and in the innovation of prosthetic materials.
Long-term follow-up is required to assess aortic remodeling and the decline in the incidence of aortic events following endovascular procedures used to treat acute and chronic aortic dissection. The intricate recanalization and thrombectomy procedures required for endovascular therapy of acute and chronic mesenteric ischemia require technical expertise and specialized equipment.
The potential clinical advantages of these cutting-edge techniques must still be determined and contrasted with the open surgical strategy. Future decision-making will be aided by artificial intelligence, but the viewpoints solicited should be relevant to imaging and radioprotection employing electromagnetic guidance.
In this Special Issue, researchers are invited to discuss contemporary issues in handling various conditions, such as clinical advances in endovascular and vascular surgery, aortic dissection, carotid artery disease, and peripheral arterial disease, just to mention a few.

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.
