Special Issue in Journal of Clinical Medicine: Minimally Invasive Emergency Surgery
Technological innovation in surgery has, over time, led to a profound change in medical care, improving outcomes and enabling a faster postoperative course. Several procedures once performed in open surgery are now performed in minimally invasive surgery, requiring the surgeon to become familiar with new techniques. Therefore, improvements in technological innovation require the surgeon to undergo continuing education and acquire new expertise. Surgical education and training are now considered of paramount importance to acquire practical, theoretical, attitudinal, and technological skills.
This Special Issue aims to collect articles on surgical training and procedures performed with innovative minimally invasive surgery techniques. Both clinical and experimental research will be welcomed.
Case series, cohort and case-control studies, as well as systematic reviews and meta-analyses will be accepted from all over the world.
