Journal Article (Review)

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This paper will focus on novel breast cancer therapies used in clinical practice today, as well as review our understanding of standard therapies and their potential impact on cardiovascular health. RECENT FINDINGS: Established and novel treatments such as anthracyclines, HER2-targeted agents, and immunotherapy have contributed to improvements in breast cancer outcomes; however, these treatments may be associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular injury. The number of available breast cancer treatments continues to expand, as does the need for health care providers to understand the potential impact of these treatments on cardiovascular health. Collaborative approaches in the development of risk stratification, prevention, and surveillance strategies for patients exposed to established and novel breast cancer treatments will facilitate improvements in patient outcomes without compromising their cardiovascular health.
