About

The field of oncology has advanced remarkably. Some of the old and new emerging cancer therapies are associated with development of cardiovascular toxicities , which may have the potential to offset the gains in survival obtained with this cancer treatment advances. Much of the focus on cardiovascular toxicities has been in the early detection of myocardial damage and prediction of cancer therapeutics-related cardiac dysfunction (CTRCD). The main strategy for these patients is timely diagnosis and treatment of high-risk individual Cardiac dysfunction associated with cancer treatment is the main cause of mortality in cancer survivors. The mortality rate is recorded to be up to 60% in the first two years after therapy. The most commonly associated drugs with cardiotoxicity are anthracycline (AC) and monoclonal antibodies (such as trastuzumab). Other new agents, such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitors, immunotherapies, and proteasome inhibitors, can also cause cardiac dysfunction .
