We end the 40th anniversary volume of the Thai Journal of Surgery with three special articles.  The first is part of a historical overview of research in vascular surgery in Thailand within the past 40 years from the vantagepoint of Professor Pramook Mutirangura, the current President of The Royal College of Surgeons of Thailand who is also a renowned vascular surgeon. The second is a brief tribute to the friendship, or rather the fruitful collaboration, between the field of cardiothoracic surgery in Thailand and the Thai Journal of Surgery. The last special article is a rather long review of breast cancer surgery and research in Thailand seen through the lens of the Thai Journal of Surgery, albeit a very wide-angle lens. What these three articles have in common is the sense of celebration in the innovative and wide-ranging way surgical research was and is being done in Thailand. Of course, these are well exemplified in the pages of the Thai Journal of Surgery.
