Dear Colleagues,

The proceedings of some of the presentations given during Eurosurgery 2002, held in Lisboa, Portugal, June 5-7 2002, are presented here as extended abstracts.

We are pleased to see these high quality works being published, and so, having the opportunity of attaining a much bigger audience. It is well deserved, considering its scientific value and showing a reflection of the level of the congress.

This publishing work is due to a dedicated effort, which is becoming traditional, from Monduzzi Editore International Proceedings Division. We have to thank them for this and we hope that the publication, as well as the forthcoming ones, will have a good reception and reading from the surgical community.
