Cardiotoxicity of Cancer Therapies: A Review for the Oncology Provider

Brian Colwell Jensen, MD, will review the potential cardiotoxicity associated with radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and newer targeted cancer therapies.

Lecture Objectives:

  • Understand that receiving radiation therapy to the chest wall increases the likelihood of subsequently developing cardiovascular disease.
  • Know that anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity still occurs with contemporary dosing regimens and may lead to heart failure.
  • Recognize that molecularly targeted cancer therapies, including HER2 antagonists, kinase inhibitors, and immune checkpoint inhibitors are associated with an array of cardiovascular complications.
