Chemotherapy and particularly anthracycline exposure are associated with acute and chronic cardiotoxicity. Few data exist on the effect of cardiac function after in utero exposure to maternal chemotherapy. Our recently published multicenter prospective study showed no significant changes in systolic function using conventional echocardiographic parameters. The purpose of this study was to further investigate whether early functional changes can be detected using tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) and… CONTINUE READING
