Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,


The two top causes of death in the world are cancer and cardiovascular disease, and cardiovascular demands to the care of cancer patients are common and important given the implications for morbidity and mortality. Cancer treatment has advanced rapidly from surgery, cytotoxic chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and targeted and immune-based therapies over the past decades. These advances have led to an increase in the number of cancer survivors, however an emerging issue associated with these new cancer therapies is side effects on the cardiovascular system, which cause different spectrums of morbidity and mortality. In order to explor and detect cancer therapeutics–related cardiovascular dysfunction and mitigate its progression, the both fields are closely intertwined with each other.  

This Special Issue takes specific focus on the current state of cardio-oncology field and especially cancer therapy-related cardiac dysfunction—exploring the mechnisms, reviewing the current status including dignoastic and imaging modalites, team-based care and personalised approaches, and clinical unmet needs, with recommendations to minimise the risk of cardiovascular toxicity from cancer therapies and the development of dedicated cardio-oncology care.
