    European Surgery - Acta Chirurgica Austriaca is the official journal of the Austrian Society of Surgery and its affiliated societies, the Association of Surgeons of the Federation Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Croatian Surgical Society, the Czech Surgical Society (Member of the Czech Medical Society), the Europen Society of Surgery, the Hungarian Surgical Society, the Slovak Surgical Society, the Slovenian Association of Surgeons, and the European Federation for ColoRectal Cancer. Published bimonthly, the journal is dedicated to all colleagues interested in original articles, reviews, case reports, short communications on current developments in surgical practice and research. The main focus of the journal is on general surgery, endocrine surgery, thoracic surgery, plastic surgery, heart and vascular surgery, and traumatology. Special editorial features include "new surgical techniques" (minimally invasive surgery, robot surgery) and "advances in biotechnology related to surgery" (equipment, interdisciplinary perioperative management, surgical oncology).
    In addition to the journal's scientific value for research, it has become a powerful instrument for bringing up-to-date scientific information to specialized surgery units of General Hospitals. European Surgery - Acta Chirurgica Austriaca has therefore developed a unique concept in order to promote quality research in surgery.
