Cardiotoxicity is a serious adverse effect of chemotherapy that encompasses a spectrum of disorders, ranging from relatively benign arrhythmias to potentially lethal conditions such as myocardial ischemia/infarction and cardiomyopathy. The toxicity of chemotherapeutic drugs can cause loss of myocytes' sarcolemmal integrity, release of bioactive markers into… CONTINUE READING
