About this Research Topic
Current disease treatment is based on medicine and surgery. In many hospitals, however, the drug department is not directly involved in surgical operation. Although the doctors have sufficient knowledge in medicines, it is suggested to pay more attention to the interaction and balance between medicine and surgery. With the development of new drugs, there are growing needs of co-use of medicines for preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative treatment. Therefore, this Research Topic would attract surgical studies with specificities in using medicines and advanced healthcare techniques, monitoring biochemical indicators and concentrations relative to pharmacokinetics, understanding and balancing the interaction between medicine and surgery. The outcome of the Research Topic may contribute to the improvement of surgical protocols from a pharmaceutical perspective.
The aim of the current Research Topic is to cover promising, recent, and novel research trends in co-use of medicines in surgery. Areas to be covered in this Research Topic may include, but are not limited to:
Model-informed medicine and surgery
Medicines for preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative treatment
Advanced healthcare techniques
Pharmacokinetics (biochemical indicators and concentrations)
Balance of medicine and surgery from perspective of pharmacists and nurses
Improved surgical protocols
Sterilization, anti-inflammation and hemostasis drugs
Sedative and anti-allergic and secretion-inhibiting drugs
Visceral drugs for disease treatment
Clinical practice and case report
Keywords: Medicines, Preoperative intraoperative and postoperative treatment, Pharmacology, Clinical observations, Cellular and molecular studies
