The issue of ethics in scientific publications remains both relevant and of paramount importance. The literature has extensively documented misconduct issues, problems in publishing and ethics all around the world. Scimago Journal and Country Rank ranked Ukraine in the 45th position globally, underscoring its significant presence in the global research landscape. Despite the good position, from personal observation in scientific publications in Ukraine, the weak 
sides are the absence of a clear hypothesis, predatory publication, plagiarism, and incorrect citation. The prevalent tendency in the Ukrainian academic community «to publish for the sake of publication, not to be read or cited» is a concern that should be addressed. This inclination is one of the primary issues contributing to the challenges mentioned above. The academic community in Ukraine must shift its focus toward producing high-quality, impactful research that not only gets published but is also read, cited, and contributes to the advancement of knowledge.

The full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine in early 2022 affected the lives of every Ukrainian. According to the International Organization for Migration, 11.3 million Ukrainians were forced to relocate since the beginning of the Russian invasion: 4.2 million left Ukraine, and 7.1 million were displaced internally. At the same time that many displaced Ukrainians were forced to evacuate West, many others headed East, towards the front lines and into harm’s way. This article shares the story of three civilian physicians from Lviv, a city in Western Ukraine. For over a year, Dr. Dmytro Beshley and Drs. Roman and Andriy Sobko worked in the Donetsk region near the battlefront. Their trio is referred to as “Dmytro and Brothers Sobko”. Their bond dates to 2014, when all three first were deployed to the Ukrainian Miliary Forces. That deployment lasted 14 months, with most of their time spent operating in Donetsk region, including Mariupol, Krasnoarmiysk (Pokrovsk) and Dnipro. A phone call in February of 2022 reconnected all of them yet again. As they had done in 2014, all three of them answered the call and took leave of successful medical careers, family, hobbies, and the comforts of daily living to serve Ukraine. So many Ukrainian heroes have done the same, and this article is meant to share just one story about the multitude of formerly civilian doctors who must now carry weapons
over their white coats as they must practice medicine under the savagery of war.

The optimal choice of landing zone of the aorta is the key to good long-term results of endovascular treatment on the descending thoracic aorta. In patients with Type B aortic dissection and retrograde dissection to the aortic arch, arterial debranching of the aortic arch branches allows to form a safe landing zone and reduce the risk of antegrade endoleak formation and retrograde dissection.

  • To analyze chest penetrating chest wounds with heart injury by native computed tomography (CT).
  • To differentiate groups of patients who need urgent surgery (life-saving procedures) at the mobile military hospitals and who might be safely transported to the specialized cardiac surgery departments without previous urgent surgical procedures. 

It remains unknown if there has ever been a period in human history free of challenges and hard times.A Google search brings up about 6.78 billion results for "war", showing how common it has been. Both academic sources and AI tools struggle to provide data confirming lasting peaceful periods in world history. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that humanity will likely face challenges in the future.The purpose of this poster is to encourage radiologists worldwide to proceed with their academic activities based on my experience during the war.
