Anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity: cardiac monitoring by continuous wave-Doppler ultrasound cardiac output monitoring and correlation to echocardiography.


BACKGROUND Anthracyclines are agents with a wellknown cardiotoxicity. The study sought to evaluate the hemodynamic response to an anthracycline using realtime continuous-wave (CW)-Doppler ultrasound cardiac output monitoring (USCOM) and echocardiography in combination with serum biomarkers. METHODS 50 patients (26 male, 24 female, median age 59 years… (More)
