About this book


In recent years, progress in oncologic therapy has achieved important goals and a consequent prognostic improvement for patients with malignancy, but cardiac toxicity is often a concern and can have long-term functional or structural effects on the heart. This book is written for the cardiologist working in a clinical environment without support from a specific specialized cardio-oncologist team, and who are called to perform a clinical consultation to evaluate a cardiac condition and the eligibility for a patient to receive chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

Cardiac Management of Oncology Patients: Clinical Handbook for Cardio-Oncology is also designed for oncologists and cardiologists to evaluate if a cancer treatment has produced toxic effects on a patient who has either recently or historically been treated with chemo or radiotherapy. The reader will discover more about the cardiac damage potentially created by the oncologic therapy that they are considering for the treatment of their patients.
