Associate Professor Delaney is an academic Vascular Surgeon affiliated with both Flinders University and the Southern Adelaide Local Health Network.

Clinically, his areas of interest include renal access surgery, deep venous reconstruction and limb salvage (specifically, advancements in management of complex wounds and innovative endovascular techniques to treat complex peripheral arterial disease).

From an academic perspective, Associate Professor Delaney provides leadership to a diverse group of researchers within the Department of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at Flinders Medical Centre. The focus of this research includes the role of nutrition in the management of vascular surgery; non-invasive imaging techniques in peripheral arterial disease (with a particular focus on Intra-Vascular Ultrasound); overcoming barriers to complex wound healing in neuro-ischaemic ulceration.

Most recently, a welcome addition to this research portfolio is the establishment of a biobank of tissue of patients with peripheral arterial disease and cerebrovascular disease. This provides significant opportunities to further understand vascular disease from a basic science, translational and clinical perspective.

Associate Professor Delaney is also an active HDR supervisor and an investigator in several global clinical trials that use novel technology to reduce rates of vascular restenosis in peripheral endovascular interventions, as well as a first in man trial of technology to reduce restenosis rates in surgical arterio-venous fistulae.
