Updates in Cardio-Oncology 2018: Challenges and New Frontiers

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This course reviews clinically important information regarding the management of cardiac and vascular diseases affecting patients with cancer and cancer survivors. The interactive, practice-based format includes case presentations and state-of-the-art lectures in recent and topical developments in this emerging field. The goal is to improve quality, safety and outcomes for patients within the dynamic and interactive educational experience. The current state of knowledge of common cardiovascular complications such as heart failure (HF), myocardial ischemia, hypertension (HTN), thromboembolism, QT prolongation, and bradycardia is associated with frequently used anticancer medications.

An optional hands-on echocardiography workshop will be an individualized training provided by experts using the techniques necessary for early detection of cardiac dysfunction with this relatively novel echocardiography based technology. Attendees will learn measurements at a dedicated station on the nuances of speckle track/strain measurements. Space is limited. Pre-registration is required.
