Like many areas of medicine, vascular surgery has been transformed by the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) pandemic. Public health precautions to minimize disease transmission have led to reduced attendance at hospitals and clinics in elective and emergency settings; fewer face-to-face and hands-on clinical interactions; and increased reliance on telemedicine, virtual attendance, investigations, and digital therapeutics. However, a "silver lining" to the COVID-19 pandemic may be the mainstream acceptance and acceleration of telemedicine, remote monitoring, digital health technology, and three-dimensional technologies, such as three-dimensional printing and virtual reality, by connecting health care providers to patients in a safe, reliable, and timely manner, and supplanting face-to-face surgical simulation and training. This review explores the impact of these changes in the delivery of vascular surgical care.

The spread of coronavirus disease 2019 has drastically altered the medical landscape and profoundly affected the way we conduct our vascular surgery practices. The pandemic was a time of change, not only in the way health care was provided, but also in how people in the health care systems interacted. Social media has rapidly become a crucial communication tool, combining physical distancing and digital connectedness. This article provides an overview of the use of online platforms in vascular surgery as a response of our community to the pandemic.
