The Division works continually to improve quality of life for patients with vascular diseases. We are privileged to work with an outstanding team of faculty and community vascular specialists, cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, radiologists, podiatrists, rehabilitation specialists, basic scientists, engineers and computer scientists. Our ongoing collaborations have promoted remarkable academic and clinical productivity involving new and dramatically improved techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease, gaining the Division international recognition as a Vascular Center of Excellence.
The faculty is distinguished by expertise in many aspects of vascular disease management, but perhaps none more so than aortic aneurysm disease. Stanford Vascular Surgeons are recognized around the world as leaders in aortic aneurysm treatment and research.

Wearables could transform monitoring and outcome assessment for vascular interventions
Health technology solutions—such as mobile apps and wearables—can play a huge role in activity tracking and assessing the outcomes of peripheral vascular interventions, says Ronald L Dalman (Stanford, USA), president-elect of the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS). Down the road, the SVS plans a branded mobile activity tracker and Dalman notes that such tools may also be used to measure aneurysm diameter, or look for evidence of stroke when patients are sleeping. Still, accuracy, expense, appropriateness, privacy, reliability, reproducibility and “those types of issues” will be a concern, he states.
Dalman spoke to Vascular News at the SVS Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM; 12–15 June 2019, National Harbor, USA).
