This Viewpoint article highlights the importance of reconsidering certain clinical visits, including imaging tests, for patients with cancer and/or cardiovascular disease during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The authors also provide general guidance, based on available evidence, regarding the role of routine cardiac surveillance as the novel coronavirus continues to be a threat.
Developed by an American Society of Clinical Oncology expert panel and based on a systematic review of literature, these guidelines equip health care providers to discuss potential cardiac dysfunction with patients at high risk and initiate appropriate prevention and screening measures prior to beginning therapy.
Learn from the multidisciplinary team of cardio-oncology specialists at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center about how to balance the anticipated benefits of breast cancer therapy with cardiovascular risk and helpful strategies to prevent cardiotoxicity and improve outcomes and long-term quality of life for breast cancer survivors.
This comprehensive review from Breast Cancer Research and Treatment analyses clinical trials of trastuzumab, lapatinib, pertuzumab, T-DM1, and neratinib in breast cancer. The authors discuss incidence and mechanisms for cardiotoxicity of HER2-targeted therapies, in addition to summarizing practices in management of cardiotoxicity for routine patient care.
Stay up to date about emerging research on the cardiotoxicities seen with many types of cancer therapy. Learn about why these cardiac effects occur, and how to best monitor for and manage them in your patients.
Learn about the development and implementation of a cardio-oncology program in a suburban community cardiology practice, created to provide service in this area to breast cancer patients at risk for cardiotoxicity, including the use of the Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation, and Maintenance (RE-AIM) framework to guide the project and enhance the translation of research into practice through planning and execution.
This review explores current data on risk factors, diagnoses, and treatment options that impact cardio-oncologic patients with COVID-19, in addition to offering strategies for the treatment and management of this population.
The patient section of the Canadian Cardiac Oncology Network’s site offers patients access to information about cardiac oncology, including educational resources, clinical trials, and research articles, in addition to a frequently asked questions list and Canadian-specific clinic search.
