Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are one of the most serious diseases threatening human health in the world. Therefore, effective monitoring and treatment of CVDs are urgently needed. Compared with traditional rigid devices, nanomaterials based flexible devices open up new opportunities for further development beneficial from the unique properties of nanomaterials which contribute to excellent performance to better prevent and treat CVDs. This review summarizes recent advances of nanomaterials based flexible devices for the monitoring and treatment of CVDs. First, we review the outstanding characteristics of nanomaterials. Next, we introduce flexible devices based on nanomaterials for practical use in CVDs including in vivo, ex vivo, and in vitro methods. At last, we make a conclusion and discuss the further development needed for nanomaterials and monitoring and treatment devices to better care CVDs.
