Acta Chirurgica Croatica, in print since 2004, founded by Ante Petričević, MD, Ph.D., is an official journal of the Croatian Society of Surgery, Croatian Society of Pediatric Surgeons and Croatian Society for Endoscopic Surgery.

The journal publishes reviews, original papers, reports basic research or clinical applications in the field of general, thoracic, cardiac, orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, otorhinolaryngology, gynecology and anesthesiology as well as technical notes, rapid communications, case reports, resident corner, surgical hypothesis and letters to the Editor.

The journal is open access, and all previous issues are available online.

Acta Chirurgica Croatica aims to be a forum for the communication and exchange of ideas concerning various aspects of surgery. Furthermore, the journal seeks to promote medical research within an international context through the careful selection of papers.

The journal is open for publication of supplements and publishing abstracts of scientific surgical meetings in Croatia. Although the journal is managed by the Croatian Surgical Society, contributions from authors working in other countries are welcome. We encourage all surgical experts to become our authors and contact us with suggestions and comments.
