The editorial board of the European Journal of Pediatric Surgery is very pleased to release the European Pediatric Surgical Association (EUPSA) issue of the journal. The issue contains papers presented at the 20th European Congress of Pediatric Surgery which took place in Belgrade, Serbia, between June 12 and 16, 2019.

There have been many scientific highlights during the meeting and numerous of them have been submitted to be considered for publication in the European Journal of Pediatric Surgery. The submitted manuscripts were reviewed by the EUPSA Publication Committee comprising professors Ernest van Heurn, Amsterdam; Martin Lacher, Leipzig; Shawn St. Peter, Kansas City; Udo Rolle, Frankfurt; Juan Tovar, Madrid; Benno Ure, Hannover; Tomas Wester, Stockholm; and Augusto Zani, Toronto.

Fifty-seven manuscripts were submitted and reviewed. Nineteen were finally accepted for publication and will appear in this issue.
