Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The treatment of vascular disease depends on the type and severity of the disease. Vascular surgery has recently experienced a renaissance in treatment algorithms with the introduction of minimally invasive and catheter-based techniques. Open and endovascular techniques are the cornerstones of vascular surgery and are used to treat a variety of diseases in various vascular "beds" or target vessels.

Patients requiring vascular surgery are older subjects with several comorbidities, including frailty problems and increased vulnerability. Treating such patients has become an important challenge for vascular surgeons and dedicated nurses, as these patients are more susceptible to complications during the postoperative and discharge periods. Vascular nursing is a discipline that provides patients in the field of vascular surgery with comprehensive, optimized care; better postoperative outcomes; and coordinated, standardized, and cost-effective clinical pathways. Perhaps no specialty has seen faster progress and advances in the delivery of care than vascular surgery.

Vascular surgery depends substantially on diagnostic imaging and large amounts of patient data. AI’s ability to analyze this data, detect patterns, and draw conclusions exceeds human capabilities and has been shown to be beneficial in patient treatment and outcomes. In the future, the decision-making process will be aided by artificial intelligence.

This Special Issue aims to report on recent advances in vascular surgery. We are looking for high-quality papers that promote the scientific exchange of this knowledge.
