New Breakthroughs in Hepato-pancreato-biliary Diseases Management

Hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) diseases refer to any disease condition affecting the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and bile ducts. Despite of some genetic or hereditary causes, most HPB diseases result from the chronic damage to the tissues of the organs involved. In the recent decades, significant progresses have been made in the field of HPB diseases treatment. A better understanding of the anatomy and function of the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and bile ducts, combined with advances in surgical techniques, accumulated surgical experiences, and minimally invasive interventions, has dramatically improved the post-operative recovery and short-/long-term outcomes of the patients with HPB diseases.

Under the management of multidisciplinary teams for HPB diseases, more demanding treatments via traditional and modern techniques are now feasible including surgical interventions, non-surgical treatment, clinical nutrition support, and genetic oncology. The specialty of HPB surgeries provide primary therapy and survival healthcare for patients with HPB diseases, consisting of but not limited to surgical procedures of liver resection, liver tumor ablation, pancreas resection, bile duct resection, bile duct repair, complex gallbladder resection, and transplantation. HPB surgeries are among the most challenging and complex surgical procedures performed in general surgery, with possible supports from the involvement of novel knowledge and techniques such as robotic surgery and multidisciplinary treatment plan. Research findings and case studies of HPB diseases especially with novel insights and breakthroughs can provide in-depth knowledge in HPB diseases management and broaden the horizons of surgeons, specialists, and researchers in this field.

For this Article Collection, the goal is to solicit submission of any articles to showcase the results and future challenges of traditionally used surgical procedures, new techniques, and minimally invasive interventions emerging in contemporary clinical practice for hepato-pancreato-biliary diseases, and to provide insights and directions to the surgeons, gastroenterologists, hepatologists, and researchers in this field. Authors are strongly encouraged to submit high-quality research papers on novel surgical strategies and innovative multidisciplinary treatment protocols for managing HPB diseases including but not limited to:

  • Liver diseases
    • Liver cancer; Liver abscess; Viral hepatitis; Polycystic liver disease; End-stage liver disease; Hepatic vascular diseases; Hepatic metabolic diseases
  • Pancreatic diseases
    • Pancreatic cancer; Pancreatitis; Pancreatic abscess; Pancreatic Pseudocyst; Infected pancreatic necrosis
  • Gallbladder and biliary diseases
    • Gallbladder cancer; Bile duct cancer; Gallstones; Cholangitis; Cholecystitis; Choledochal cysts

Annals of Medicine accepts the following types of articles:
