CARDIO-ONCOLOGY | AUDITORIUM 2

Directors: Júlia Toste | Nuno Cardim | Lígia Mendes

 

CARDIO-ONCOLOGY SESSION

The treatment of oncological disease is gaining efficacy, with consequent increase in patient survival but also a greater likelihood of cardiovascular events secondary to treatments received (chemotherapy or thoracic radiotherapy). Cardio-oncology as a new cardiovascular area has emerged to give the appropriate response to these patients.

This symposium will address the most recent topics in cardio-oncology, as well as new strategies regarding prevention, diagnosis and treatment, in order to avoid or, when required, treat cardiac disease secondary to anti-neoplastic therapy.
