Cardio-Oncology: Principles, Prevention and Managementis a clinical volume that focuses on the basic science of cardio-oncology, addresses cardiotoxicity as a consequence of cancer therapy, and discusses prevention, diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disease in patients with cancer.

This comprehensive volume presents unique perspectives ranging from basic science to clinical medicine in the field of cardio-oncology. It would be a valuable resource for cardiologists, oncologists, internists, and pediatricians caring for patients with cancer who have cardiovascular risk factors, as well as for cardio-oncology researchers.

  • Covers basic science of cardio-oncology to provide readers with the necessary background
  • Addresses cardiotoxicity related to current cancer therapeutic modalities
  • Discusses diagnostic and management approaches of patients with underlying cardiac risk factors as well as otherwise healthy cancer patients
