CJDS covers the whole field of digestive surgery in China. It mainly reports domestic and overseas achievements of clinical and experimental researches in this field. For the clinical researches, it focuses on the rapid development of new techniques, theories and methods in digestive surgery. The diagnosis and treatment of the hepatolithiasis in China reported in the journal is in the leading position worldwide, and the obvious predominance and unique experience of treating various complex and refractory hepatobiliary diseases go beyond other publications nationwide. Guide to the diagnosis and management of Hepatolithiasis£¬the first systematic and complete guidebook in digestive surgery, was published in the journal, which has established the prominent position of the journal in the field of digestive surgery. Meanwhile, the combination of advanced theory of biliary tract surgery and abundant experience of liver transplantation has significantly increased success rate of operations and decreased biliary tract complications. The application of minimally invasive surgery in the treatment of gastric cancer in China has set a record of operation cases and efficacy rate. For the experimental researches, the journal mainly covers the outstanding achievements in digestive-surgery-related anatomy, pathological and physiological changes, biochemistry and molecular biology. The journal perseveringly tracks and reports the advanced experiences and achievements in the fields mentioned above so as to reveal the development trend of digestive surgery in China in an all-round way. The journal is an important part of the “academic garden of digestive surgery” since its establishment. The annual “International Forum on Hepatobiliary Surgery” and “Chinese Symposium on Digestive Surgery” attract a large number of domestic and overseas experts and peers, and serve as a platform for academic exchanges.
