CALL for PAPERS | Surgery in Geriatrics

New Content Item

Aging Clinical and Experimental Research is pleased to invite submissions to new section "Surgery in Geriatrics".


"The age of patients requiring surgical procedures is continuously increasing. Thus, surgeons are daily called to face with the issue of the trade-off between morbidity and efficacy of surgery in those more fragile patients.
The best way to achieve successful results is to counsel these patients addressing their specific expectations, and to improve the selection of surgical candidate. Therefore, good researches specifically tailored to the geriatric population are needed.
