Translational research is the process of applying the knowledge gained from basic research to clinical practice. Over the past three decades, translational research has transformed from a simple bi-directional flow from basic science to clinical care to a multifaceted, translational research spectrum that has the patient as the centerpiece. Globally, the vascular diseases spectrum has also been continuously changing with the aging population, change in lifestyle, and diabetic epidemic. This review aims to introduce new and exciting translation research concepts in the field of vascular surgery and medicine in general that could transform the management of patients with vascular diseases. An overview of contemporary translational research in the management of atherosclerosis, aneurysmal disease, and peripheral arterial disease is also highlighted.
