    Special Issue on Abdominal Surgery

    Abdominal surgery broadly covers surgical procedures that involve opening the abdomen. Surgery of each abdominal organ is dealt with separately in connection with the description of that organ (see stomach, kidney, liver, etc.) Diseases affecting the abdominal cavity are dealt with generally under their own names.

    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on abdominal surgery. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Appendectomy
    • Inguinal hernia surgery
    • Postoperative complications and care
    • Infections and mortality in abdominal surgery
    • Emergency abdominal surgery
    • Acute abdomen
    • Abdominal aortic aneurysm repair

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.

    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Abdominal Surgery should be chosen during your submission.
