2022 Pediatric Grand Rounds | Treatment-Associated Cardiotoxicity in Pediatric Acute Myeloid Leukemia: Occurrence and Implications
Cardiotoxicity is an important complication after AML chemotherapy which can affect post-treatment quality of life and treatment related mortality. There are new options for risk assessment and cardiotoxicity prevention which are critical for long term cardiac outcome. This lecture is designed to educate healthcare providers on improving communication, patient screening and post treatment monitoring to close the knowledge gap. This will improve patient outcomes and cardiac health.
