New edition of Cancer and the Heart now available
Cancer and the Heart addresses the complex interactions of multiple diseases in patients who have cancer and who either have or who are expected to acquire significant heart disease. The book seeks to aid patients who have undergone and survived cancer therapy only to be debilitated by cardiotoxicity. The updated third edition will facilitate personalized clinical management and provide the basic background to support clinical decision-making toward the ultimate goal of improving quality of life for the afflicted patients. Cancer and the Heart became the standard textbook for oncocardiology in its first edition. The new edition continues to provide the practical information and guidance of the previous editions. The editor Michael S. Ewer has segmented the 28 chapters of the third edition in three sections. The first section addresses the effects of cancer treatment on the heart, the second section deals with the gamut of cardiac imaging techniques with an emphasis on clinical problems experienced by physicians and their patients, the third section examines related subjects such as other organ system dysfunction. With contributions from onco-cardiology or cardio-oncology leaders managing these complex interactions, Cancer and the Heart, third edition, is a current and comprehensive reference for clinicians, investigators, and students.
