Cardiac Toxicity

Cardiac toxicity is damage to the heart by harmful chemicals. As part of your treatment, you may be given toxins (drugs) to kill cancer cells. A side effect is that the normal cells in and around your heart can also be killed. Besides cell death, other types of cardiac toxicity from cancer treatment include:
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Myocarditis
  • Pericarditis
  • Acute Coronary Syndromes
  • Congestive Heart Failure
