Mayo Clinic cardiologist, Joerg Herrmann, MD, provides a review of the three main types of presentation of vascular toxicity seen with chemotherapy: acute vasospasm, acute thrombosis, and accelerated atherosclerosis. Each type is illustrated by a case example, followed by a concise review of the presently known underlying mechanisms. Recommendations for screening, prevention, and management conclude each vascular toxicity type chapter.
