The development of endovascular approaches has significantly modified the treatment of aortic, peripheral, and carotid diseases with new strategies and complications. Open procedures remain a valuable option in specific situations with recent limited innovations. This Special Issue invites researchers to address current challenges in managing different areas, such as aortic dissection, mesenteric ischemia, and peripheral arterial disease.
The endovascular techniques used in acute and chronic aortic dissection need long-term follow-up to evaluate aortic remodeling and the reduction in the rate of incidence of aortic events. Endovascular management of acute and chronic mesenteric ischemia requires technical skills and dedicated devices to perform complex recanalization and thrombectomy. Vessel preparation and drug-eluting technologies are frequently used in PAD patients. The limitations of paclitaxel when it comes to preventing restenosis and potential side effects has promoted sirolimus-coated balloons and stents, but long-term results are still needed. Nevertheless, the potential clinical benefit of these advanced procedures remains to be defined and compared to the open surgical approach. Artificial intelligence will help decision making in the future, but the perspectives invited should be related to imaging and radioprotection using electromagnetic guidance.
Therefore, the editors will consider original manuscripts, short communications, and reviews relevant to these topics. We look forward to your enthusiastic participation in this Special Issue.

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.
