Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

The development and the employment of new technologies have given several and great contributions to improving the quality of care in the field of general and gastrointestinal surgery, either in a diagnostic or operative manner. As the metamorphosis from conventional to minimally invasive surgery has changed the methods of performing surgery, the knowledge of molecular genetics, neuroendocrine, and immune mechanisms of diseases has also modified the therapeutic strategies for treating cancers toward an ever more patient-tailored treatment. The ever-growing interest in advanced surgical technologies requires us to always keep up with novelties. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect original papers about innovations in gastrointestinal surgery, either in the diagnostic or operative fields of research. We are soliciting original articles, systematic reviews and meta-analyses, short communications, technical notes and opinion articles.
