What are the Best Approaches to Monitor and Managing Vascular Toxicity in Cardio-Oncology?

Joerg Herrmann, MD, Mayo Clinic cardiologist, provides a review of the three main types of presentation of vascular toxicity seen with chemotherapy: acute vasospasm, acute thrombosis, and accelerated atherosclerosis. Each type is illustrated by a case example, followed by a concise review of the presently known underlying mechanisms. Recommendations for screening, prevention, and management conclude each vascular toxicity type chapter. In a building block format the practitioners will be equipped to recognize and manage vascular toxicity of cancer therapy in daily practice.
