Special Issue in Journal of Clinical Medicine: Advances in Perioperative Care: Challenges and Perspectives in Enhanced Recovery after Surgery, Perioperative Optimization and Prehabilitation
Colorectal surgery has been rapidly evolving over the last few years. Newer technologies and techniques are increasingly being used and have become part of surgical armamentarium. Indeed, much needs to be explored in the field of coloproctology, as the desire to shed light on grey areas is constantly growing, in parallel with the implementation of innovations into clinical practice. The aim of the present Topical Collection is to serve as a forum for critically addressing how the advent of recent technological developments has impacted the outcomes of colorectal surgery, the way patients are managed perioperatively, postoperative recovery, and patient experience throughout an operation. Manuscripts are invited critically assessing the role of minimally invasive approaches, application of artificial intelligence and big data to decision making, peroperative patient optimization, application of transational research in coloproctology, or comparing the outcomes of different innovative approaches to colorectal diseases. Priority is given to high-quality, original studies, but well-designed and conducted systematic reviews (with or without metanalysis) giving a coincise and exaustive vision on the state-of-the-art on a specific topic are welcome. In summary, the Topical Collection aims to increase clinicians’ knowledge of poorly explored areas of coloproctology, as well as to provide a balanced, sound, and evidence-based overview of the advances and potential perspectives in the field.
