Professor Michael Dake, USA, received his medical degree

from Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, 1978, where he

did an internship and residency in Internal Medicine 1978

1982 followed by a fellowship in Pulmonary Medicine at

University of California, San Francisco, 1982-1983. He then

entered a residency in Radiology and did a fellowship in

Interventional Radiology at UCSF 1986-1987. The year

following his fellowship, he worked at San Francisco

General Hospital before moving to Miami in 1988 to join Barry

T. Katzen at the newly founded the Miami Vascular Institute.


In 1990, Professor Dake assumed the positions of Section

Chief of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology, and

Co-director of the Catheterization and Angiography

Laboratories at Stanford University Hospital. Over the next

15 years at Stanford, he directed a team of

interventionalists, who collaborated with specialists in other

disciplines to achieve a number of noteworthy

accomplishments. Professor Dake is a true pioneer in

modern endovascular therapy with a number of medical first

patient series including:


•Femoral-popliteal stent-graft treatment of occlusive disease

(Radiology 1993)

•Catheter directed thrombolysis of deep venous thrombosis

(Radiology 1994)

•Stent placement in the carotid arteries (Radiology 1994)

•Stent-graft treatment of thoracic aortic aneurysms (NEJM


•First to use a stent-graft to cover a primary tear of an aortic

type B dissection (1996) and the first patient series on that

subject (NEJM 1999).


In 2005, Professor Dake assumed the role of Chairman of

the Department of Radiology, Professor of Radiology at the

University of Virginia Health System and professorial

appointments in the Department of Medicine (Pulmonary

Diseases) and Surgery at the School of Medicine in

Charlottesville. In 2008, he returned to Stanford where he

now is Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery and Medical

Director of the Catheterization and Angiography

Laboratories at Stanford Medical Center.


The most enduring reputation of Professor Dake is his

sustained development and vast clinical experience of

endovascular procedures for the management of

aortic/arterial diseases, especially endovascular treatment

of thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections including in

vitro/vivo experimental studies, and more recently the use of

drug-eluting stents in the treatment of arterial occlusive

disease. He has an impressive scientific production and has

received numerous awards and honours.


Professor Dake has in a most generous way shared his

vast experience with us in Sweden at a number of

occasions for which he is awarded this honorary
