Cancer and Heart Disease: Chemo and Radiation Heart

with Patrick Collier, MD, PhD and Milind Desai, MD

Description:

Current treatments for cancer have been one of the greatest achievements in modern medicine. However, many of the cancer therapies can have significant and serious cardiovascular side effects, such as heart failure, thromboembolism, severe hypertension and lethal arrhythmia if not managed properly. The risks and side effects can interrupt the cancer treatment, or may not even show up until years later. Therefore, minimizing cardiovascular risk factors, such as smoking and blood pressure, and watching out for early symptoms are even more essential for cancer survivors. It’s also important to work with a multi-disciplinary team of experts including oncologists and cardiologists who work together to help minimize the impact of chemo and radiation on your heart before, during, and after your treatments. Take this opportunity to learn more and have your questions answered by Co-Director of Cleveland Clinic’s Cardio-Oncology Center, Patrick Collier, MD, PhD, and cardiologist in the Section of Cardiovascular Imaging in the Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Milind Desai, MD.
