Provides you with the essentials of clinical management of the most common cardiac complications of cancer therapy.
Cardiac complications of anticancer therapy represent an emerging clinical issue in both established chemotherapeutics as well as novel molecular therapies. As a result, healthcare providers are under greater pressure to be vigilant in evaluating patients with cancer for acute and chronic or late physical effects of cancer therapy – some of which could be life-threatening.
