Gastrointestinal Surgery: Emerging Techniques, Controversies and State of art

About this Research Topic

Gastrointestinal surgery represents the largest field in General Surgery. In the last years, several new techniques have been introduced, sometimes with low-evidence to justify a wider adoption, sometimes improving postoperative outcomes and adding a further help for a tailored approach to a specific disease (e.g. TaTME in the surgery of rectal cancer, CME in right hemicolectomy, Mini-invasive techniques in proctology or ALPPS in liver surgery).

The availability of several surgical (and endoscopic) techniques, albeit potentially beneficial for patients undergoing gastrointestinal surgery, needs a deep knowledge of indications, strength and pitfalls of any of these procedure, as well as, the evidence supporting them. With in this issue, we are trying to give information about a management of a specific disease or surgical treatment to encourage a correct decision making by gastrointestinal surgeons in the light of the best evidence available.

In the present special issue, we are encouraging experienced colleagues to submit original research articles, case studies, and review articles regarding the emerging techniques, the state of art and controversies in the field of gastrointestinal surgery (then including Upper GI, Lower GI and Hepatobiliary tract). Contribution in the endoscopic or medical management of gastrointestinal disease may be considered if providing important messages for an holistic management of patients suffering gastrointestinal pathologies.

We welcome submissions on the following topics:

• Classification & Scoring System

• Emerging Technologies

• Post-operative Complications

• Surgical Treatment

• Special Conditions

• Historical overview in the surgical management of a specific topic (e.g. Bariatric Surgery)


Keywords: colorectal surgery, collaborative research, general surgery, minimally invasive surgery, bariatric surgery, gastric cancer, colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel diseases, gastrointestinal endoscopy


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
